    RAID Problem on a Dell XPS 8300

    BerlinTop

      Hi there,

       

      after a sudden power outage, my Dell upon boot reports a problem in the RAID configuration. I attach the RAID configuration page as photo.

      I have no clue what that means. It looks though, like one of the two hard drives has a problem, although the overall one TB of storage (2 times 0,5 TB) still seems to be fully available. Kind of hard to understand.

       

      Amazingly, the reported problem does not cause a lot of trouble when working with the machine. I have issues like some software does not start anymore, but 90% of the time, the machine runs well.

      I performed hardware tests, and the drives themselves are fine, so it is a software problem (which Dell would not fix, even during the warranty time).

       

      Still, it probably wil get worde with time, and I need to fix it. I could just delete the RAID volume, but wouldn't that result in loss of data? Or are they lost anyway?

       

      Can anybody point me in the right direction?

      Appreciate it.

       

      Thanks

      Joerg
