-This option only make sense if the logical volume being operated

-resynchronize the devices in a mirrored logical volume.  Since

+Forces the complete resynchronization of a mirror.  In normal
+circumstances you should not need this option because synchronization
+happens automatically.  Data is read from the primary mirror device
+and copied to the others, so this can take a considerable amount of
+time - and during this time you are without a complete redundant copy
+of your data.
