[Gluster-users] AFR recovery question

I have 2 servers that AFR eachother.

one of them suffered a drive failure and is being rebuilt.

the question is.  What will happen if I just mount the empty drive 
back as the AFR node.

will it just start grabbing the data from the other server (which is 
exactly what I want), OR
will it start deleting the data from the other server (which is terribly bad).

Another thought was to, on the current working server with good data, 
disable the remote afr node from it's config (so it's only using AFR 
on itself), and then leave the other machines config as is, and turn it on.
This way I can be sure that the node with the data wont go nuts and 
start deleting, but that updates to it will get replicated to the 
other machine.

this particular set is running 1.4pre5 if that changes the answer.
