Does the intel communities forum have official intel reps to monitor these boards?
Is my thread in the wrong forum subsection?
Are all the replies are from end users? If so i'll look for help elsewhere...
The problem seems like the structure got corrupted and the rebuild process may ended up corrupting the files. Unfortunately it seems like the information was lost.
Just wanted to laugh at your misfortune, cruel I know, and it was 1.8TB? I hope it was business critical data. That way you'll learn that raid5 is not backup.
Ah well that cheered me up. Thanks for that. Hahahaha LOL. Restore your last backup and grovel to your manager, its your only hope of keeping your job.
Daren you are a heartless C*nt you f*cking troll
This was all my personal data. I would be proceeding much differently in an enterprise environment. Having Server+, HP Proliant, IBM Xseries, bladecenter certifications, it's basic knowledge that you should use a dedicated hardware RAID card, or a SAN, not some onboard raid on a consumer-grade chipset/board.
Whatever you do, use the right hardware for the right task. Onboard Intel RAID works just fine at home, but avoid raid 5 and always have your data at minimum two places at a time. RAID NAS boxes aren't a solution either, one of my customers purchased a 1TB four disk NAS unit featuring some sort of proprietary RAID 5 solution. All four disks were fine but the unit didn't work anymore, the manufacturer sent us a unit that has a different OS/Firmware on it, so couldn't just put the drives in the new unit and be up and running again. Should have been really simple but the box manufacturer made it complicated and all they want is the customer to send the unit+drives for data recovery costing thousands... Not really worth it.
