    Rapid Storage, DG33TL, and WD 1TB GP RAID-1 issue


      Hello all,


      I've been running my DG33TL (latest BIOS, 572 I believe) with a 640GB WD OS drive and 2x 1TB WD GP Green drives in a RAID-1 for Data. The OS is Win7 Pro x64 RTM. I'd been using v8.9.0.1023 since I installed the system last September, and on Vista Ult. x64 SP2 before that. No issues at all the with the drives.


      Since I upgraded to Rapid Storage (actually, within 30 minutes after installing), it keeps complaining that one, the other, or both of my 1TB GP drives are in danger of data loss, and when I reboot the machine, the RAID BIOS shows S.M.A.R.T. Status(0) on whatever drive(s) are coming up in Rapid Storage as having a problem. I took each drive aside and tested using WDs latest drive diagnostic utility and they each come up as not having any issues (including S.M.A.R.T.). I am sure that the drives aren't really bad, and I can't believe that if they were, they'd BOTH turn up bad within half an hour of installing


      Smells like a software bug to me. Anyone having the same issue or know of a fix/workaround?


      I'm worried about rolling this out on our new company images (I work for an OEM) given what's happened to my system.
