    RAID 10. Same drive is failing everyday. How to detect the actual cause?

    maxima

      I have X58 / ICH10R motherboard cheapset. I built brand new machine recently. My second disk system is RAID10 on 4 Seagate disks ST3320418AS. They are brand new.

       

      Once or even twice a day I have same disk failing with no apparent reason. I tried to re-connect SATA cable and replaced the cable twice but the failure still is occuring.

       

      I normally right-click on the drive, Mark As Normal then RAID is rebuiliding for a while and then it works fine till it fails again.

       

      Is there a software I can run on the disk to see why exactly it is failing? RAID controller, SATA port, cable, disk? What is it?

       

      Thank you
