If Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Version 11.6 is working for you I recommend you keep working with it.
Please note that when creating a RAID volume on the Operating System with the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology software from an existing HDD it will display a notification message that says “Completing this action will permanently delete existing data on the selected disks…” but creating the raid from the software will not delete the information on the disk and will mirror all data on both disks creating the Raid 1.
You can try also version 13.2 at this link:
Kevin thank you very much for your responce.
As you suggest, I also tried to keep going after the notification message, although it was indicated that it would have been deleted the system disk.
So it started working but windows has stopped responding and no activities hd led. After some minutes I thought it was dead, so I turned off the system.
I had to restore the system image that I had done before on a usb drive.
Ok I will try again so let's see if it can create the volume with my data.
But if it still does not work then I have an idea!
First I create a system image to usb drive, then I create the raid volume from Ctrl+I, so the new raid1 volume is intact but empty.
After I turn off the system, I move the two HD on another pc and restore the same system image on both drives.
So the data on the HD drives are identical and I can reconnect the disks in the raid system.
Do you think it can work?
It will work until the part of connecting the HDDs with the RAID already created on another system. Creating the raid from CTRL-I is the best step you can do to create a volume but if you disconnect those drives and reconnect them on another it is possible that raid will be shown as failed.
This is because the RAID volume was created with information from another system; however, there is a chance it may work if the other computer is exactly the same brand and model.
where you successful creating the raid1 volume from an existing OS disk with data ?
