How does MogileFS handle failure?

I didn't find in MogileFS's documentation how it deals with disk failure. If I configured MogileFS to have at least two copies of each file and a disk fail occur (and is impossible to recovery using fsck), how Reaper work to handle this situation? A device can automatically get the dead status?

Anyone here has the experience with MogileFS running on commodity hardware (big installations)?
