It is important to take in consideration the following:
- Make sure the disks do not have any format.
- Use same HDD capacity.
In the case that you have all this, can you please post your system report from the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology?
You said to "make sure the disks do not have any format". Does that mean not initialized, (I just initialized it as GPT after you mentioned this, as no initialization wasn't prompting, so I thought initializing it to the same as the RAID might help) Or do you mean that they should not have any partitions? (at this point the disc wasn't even initialized, let alone having any partitions)
They should be the same size. Again, a 3TB Seagate Barracuda, and a 3TB Western Digital Red.
As for the system report, I am sorry to ask, but is there a link as to how I get that?
Thanks again for your help, I really appreciate it. I know my way around most hardware and software, but this is taking me outside of my comfort zone.
The SSD that you use for acceleration should not have partitions or format. When I say format, I mean the SSD should be completely in blank and the space should be as unallocated.
You can get the System report from the IRST by doing the following steps:
- Open IRST.
- Click on the Help Tab.
- Select System Report Tab.
- Click on Save.
After that you may open the .txt file that will be created and copy and paste the information here so I can check more about the current configuration you have.
I found out out the issue was related to the size of the drives. the Seagate drives are a few KB larger than the WD Reds. I ended up doing a back up, setting up a new RAID, and a restore.
