So just to confirm, the system was restarted when it was checking the F Drive during the boot up sequence?
What is the RAID volume you have in the system?
I used Disk Doctor and when it completed it showed numerous errors. I then selected repair. It did the repair and then a restart. The program came up with "Repair complete." I restarted and then had Disk Doctor run again. It reported "no errors exist." Regarding RAID volumes, I will try to mimic the Intel Matrix Storage program indicates when started:
RAID Volumes Level Strip Size Status Bootable
0 Volume0 RAID0(stripe) 128kb 149.0GB Normal Yes
1 RAID_Volume1 RAID0(stripe) 128kb 138.4GB Normal Yes
Port Drive Model Serial No. Size Type/Status(VolID)
0 Intel SSDSAAM080 PO016604UU080BGN 74.5GB Member Disk (0)
2 Intel SSDSAAM080 PO002400UN080BGN 74.5GB Member Disk (0)
3 HitachiHDS72101 JP2921HQ176GNA 921.5GB Non-RAID Disk
4 WDC WD740GD-00FL WD-WMAKE1034497 69.2GB Error Occurred (1) (Error Occurred is colored red. All other disks are colored green)
5 WDC WD740GD-00FL WD-WMAKE1045725 69.2GB Member Disk (1)
Since the program "Intel Matrix Storage" is a Intel product, someone from Intel should be able to answer the questions posed. Come on you guys! Let me hear from you.
Can you please post your Intel® Rapid Storage Technology report here? How to get it?
IRST System Report: Open IRST > Click on Help Tab> Click on System Report > Save > Attach using Advanced Editor Options.
Kevin: You specified Rapid Storage Technology as the RAID manager. I do not have that program. I have INTEL (R) Matrix Storage Manager option ROM v126.96.36.199. 1038 ICH1OR w/RAID5 which preceded the one you specified. There is no option from the main menu to get a report. Is it safe to download and install your latest version? Is there another way to get a report from the program I have?
RAID 0 has no tolerance to errors; Matrix is telling you that the second RAID volume is degraded. The information of this volume is lost.
It is possible to get a report, go to Microsoft® Windows, open our tool and check RAID volume status. It is safety to update your Intel® Matrix software.
Two points: 1. The data on both volumes is still present and accessible.
2. If I download the latest "Matrix Manager" program won't it conflict with the existing program buried in a ROM? As far as I know ROM's are Read Only Memory.
Thanks for your help.
The INTEL® Matrix Storage Manager driver was kept on your RAID volume, after the operating system installation. The ROM of the motherboard contains only the BIOS.
It is possible to downgrade the driver.
