    Intel Matrix Storage Manager 8.9.0.1023

    Kerf

      I have been having random hard drive failures, even just sitting on my desktop. After reboot The Intel Matrix Storage Console says my RAID volume was degraded and to replace the hard drive, although i just set it to normal status and it rebuilds and appears to be fine. The hard drive failure issues occur at random and not too often. Sometime its once a day, other times its once a week. I have notice in previous posts people have been having issues with hard drive failures using this particular driver, however it is the most up to date driver for this particular program.

       

      My question is should i upgrade to Intel Rapid Storage Technology? Would i even be able to? If so, how would i go about doing that?

       

      Heres my System Report:
