Update: I've now reverted to version 8.8 of IMSM and the same has happened. I have now also tried the beta of the Intel Matrix Storage Technology app. This shows gradual % build. After it reaches just over 1% the rebuild resets and goes back to the start. It takes a few of minutes to get to 1%.
I have tried to reuse the "failed" Hitachi drive. It seems to be working, however the rebuild also resets at 1.13%.
It looks like I may be another victim of the 8.9 version of IMSM. I had installed Win 7 Pro on my PC over a month ago and had no problems with the RAID, but noticed I had not installed the IMSM software. Less than a day after installation I seem to have a phantom drive failure - coincidence ... maybe not.
Does anyone have any advice or tips for me or will I be forced to rebuild my RAID from scratch by coping all data on to other drives?
Please read my post....here
