Raid card

Q: Raid card

For my next upgrade [Some time around march,Just getting the shopping etc done now] I was thinking of increasing the boot times save times etc. My first thought was. Just get a ssd and plonk it into my system. By then I realised a raid card and Multiple HDD's would be a better option with more storage and more speed [in theory] so I've found a raid card.
My only query is that I wont be able to setup RAID 10 with 320Gb and 300mb/s or RAID 0 with 720Gb and 600mb/s and have my OS put onto this setup. [My motherboard (g33mo3 foxconn board) does NOT support RAID to my knowledge(Feel free to correct me if you know different)] so would this card be able to boot from the HDD's attatched in RAID10 / RAID 0
P.S should I go with a faster and more storage or more reliable and less power etc...

Thank you again

Preferred Solution: Raid card

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Raid card

If you're going to go RAID don't do it with the cheapest RAID controller money can buy. I can almost guarantee you won't have a great experience if you do. I've never seen a good $10 RAID controller before (unless times have really changed) and the controller you linked only has 2 SATA ports so you won't be setting up RAID10. RAID10 requires at minimum 4 drives.

nevermind - upon closer inspection it does have 4 SATA ports - but I still think if you're going to go with a RAID controller you should get a higher quality one than this.

I recently tried to install a promise stex4650 for raid 0 on my vista 64, giga p5 ud6 system. Couldn't get it to install the os, tried for a week with tech support. Even when I created the raid on the mobo and ghosted it over it worked for a bit and then would not boot into the os. I'm returning this card and have a question. Will I get superior performance with a card since this mobo has ddr 333 and ichr 10 drivers ? Toms hardware tested cards against ichr10 and ichr10 tested faster....what am I mising ?

Also I need an affordable scsi card 50 pin to work on vista 64 for an obsolete printer and scanner any recomendations ?

Thanks, Bruce

First time posting blush Situation I have two hard drives main drive Seagate GB w windows xp and second drive WD TB blank Without backing up the main drive ops i went ahead and enabled RAID on both drives and created a RAID volume KB strip Size TB GB NOTE the RAID volume size is only showing the exact space of the TB excluding the GB drive After realizing that I needed to create a backup image of my main drive to use RAID with an existing drive I m left with the quot Operating System Not Found quot message RAID volume disks deleting to RAID non-RAID issue - restore Question If I Delete RAID Volume which is based on the size from the blank TB drive will both drives become available as non-RAID disks and keep the original data on the GB main drive and be able to run windows again I m using software RAID through Intel Matrix Storage Manager option ROM v I understood that quot Resetting the drives to Non-Raid quot will cause all data on the disk to be lost so this isn t the approach that RAID issue - deleting RAID volume to restore non-RAID disks I ll be taking til I find a solution to backup my data However from reading the quot Delete RAID Volume quot option it listed Deleting a volume will destroy the volume data on the drive s and cause any member disks to become available as non-RAID disks so knowing that the RAID Volume is blank then maybe trying this will be the answer When using the Microsoft Recovery Console in RAID mode attached w both drives logically there isn t any directories files found At the moment I m seeing if I can find any data in the MR Console with RAID disabled and accessing only the main drive Just wondering if Knoppix or Data recovery softwares can backup the data Thanks to anyone taking the time to read my post nbsp

A:RAID issue - deleting RAID volume to restore non-RAID disks

sadly, there's no way to do what you want without an existing backup.

Look at it this way;
A disk has a container ~ the partition.
The partition as a structure ~ the filesystem (eg NTFS, FAT32, RAID).
We put our data into the structure.

When we create backups, we are getting only the data itself (unless you use an image program like Ghost or Acronis where you get all three).

Deleting the RAID will give back the two independent HDs, but also breaks the structure so that the data becomes in accessible.

I need advice about RAID cards...

My uncle wants to boost his hard-drive setup
I built him a new good-spec PC but he didnt buy a new HDD..
he just used the IDE 80Gb 8Mb cache one sharing the DVD-RAM IDE port

now he wants faster....
we want to setup 2 x SATAII drives in RAID O ARRAY but I dunno where to start with RAID cards that support SATAII..

he has a PCI-E x1 slot spare (as im aware in plugs into that)

any advice would be greatly appreciated...please and thank you

A:which RAID card...?

Personally, I like Adaptec among a few other brands. On Newegg you can find some cheaper models if this card is out budget, relatively easy to find.

Here's a Newegg link - just make sure when looking that it is PCIe x1

Actually do i even NEED one? becuase my motherboard (ASUS P5Q Pro Turbo) supports RAID 0,1,5,10 and im getting 2 hard drives to be in RAID 0 soo do i need a RAID card thats preferably not over ,ike 50 bucks because im on a budget here. whats the main difference?

A:What RAID card should i get?

Don't bother. Remember if you use RAID in one controller, you need another controller for the dvd drive.

hey guys I recently bought two ssds with these specs

Sequential Access - Read up to 230MB/s Sequential Access - Write up to 150MB/s
and put them into raid 0 with my on board raid. My average read time with these in raid 0 is only 123mbs, I don't know but i was expecting faster with them striped together. So i came to the conclusion that it is probably my onboard raid controller.

So i was wondering can anybody suggest some raid controllers, preferably in the 75 dollars or less range.


A:Raid card suggestion

Well, it seems like you have some other issue going on here. 1 drive alone should be scoring in the 200+ it seems like you either have SATA 1.5Gbps controllers or something isn't configured correctly. I would expect with a RAID 0 configuration, you would be around 420-470MB/s.

What motherboard do you have?

I have added a raid pci card to my xp setup. When I boot up with no hhd's connected it posts fine and shows the raid card info (along with the inbuilt raid on the motherboard) and boots into windows. But if I boot with 2 hhd's attached the system hangs at the point where windows normaly loads.

I'm not sure what to do to correct this, all seems fine if I go in to the raid setup before it boots windows and create a raid array but I still have booting problems.

I have checked in my bios and the hhd with windows is set to be first booted...

Any help would be great, tell me if you need more info.

I have an old PC that I use as a file and media server for storing backups and streaming FLAC audio files to my Squeezebox devices. It has three identical 250 gig IDE hard drives installed and, at the moment, I'm using Linux on there and using symbolic links. However, what I would really like to do is to put Windows 2000 on it (Linux is driving me CRAZY) and raid 5 the three drives together. In the quick bit of research I've done, it seems that most raid cards are for SATA drives these days. Are there any PCI raid cards still out there that will support raid 5 and work with IDE drives?

I purchased a "Silicon Image" card and it worked for a while but now all of the sudden it does not work. I take the card out and windows xp starts up fine, i put the card in and windows will not even boot up, bad card?

A:Raid card not working?

When you remove the card, is anything attached to the card? If you have nothing attached and remove the card, now the system boots fine. I would say a bad card; something died on it. If there is a drive attached to the card, try booting with the drive disconnected completely from the card.

I am soon building a small server computer and for this computer, I am getting 2 7200rpm drives. I am going to setup raid 1 for these 2 drives so if one fails, I have the other. I have never used any raid arrays before so I was wondering if it was worth getting a raid card supporting raid 1, or should I just stick with software raid. What are the downsides of using both? Thanks to anyone who helps.

A:Is a raid card worth it?

jobeard Will probably know best, but I can offer the little insight I know. RAID cards tend to be expensive, so that is something to take into consideration. Software RAIDs tend to slow down the CPU since the CPU must spend computing power driving the virtual (emulator) RAID array. I would personally avoid RAID, but for reliability purposes especially on servers, it may be worth looking into.

I have bought a Maxtor Plus 9 80Gb Serial ATA hard disk drive and as I have an older computer I have also had to buy a PCI ATA133 RAID controller card. Will it matter that I don't have two disks (as normally forms a RAID array)?

A:RAID controller card

Yep. but you need to buy a SATA PCI controller too as ATA133 controller doesn't control it. It should be obvious to you if you take a look at the back side of your new disk.

I ordered a raid card named Highpoint Rocket 640L Lite version 4-Port PCI_Express 2.0 x4 SATA 6GB/s Raid controller. I would like to know if I can simply use it to connect more data hard drives ( Not Raid Mode), as all the sata ports on my mobo are used up and I want to put my hard drives into my box.

A:Question about Raid PCI-E Card

If it will work with your system (a few people have reported incompatibility issues), then you can use it for individual non-RAIDed drives. Based on Newegg reviews, even though it advertises it's PCI-e x4, it will run at only x2 speed which means you will not get SATA III's full 6Gbs speed. Still, it should be faster than SATA II and, as long as you are running HDDS on it, you are not likely to be able to tell the difference (SSDs might appear to be slower). Be aware that it has its own BIOS that will be introduced into the boot lineup, making overall boot up time a bit longer (my own HBA, an LSI 9211-8i, does the same thing).

Hi there techspot people. I have a question in regards a sata raid controller card. Currently am searching for a decent card to allow me to build a RAID 5 array, with atleast 3 disks, expandable on the next few months to more than 4-5. I've noticed that adaptec has a reasonable choice for a sata raid controller with 6 ports, however i would like to know what the experts thing about these cards and this manufacturer. Also is there any alternative to this card? I have no pci-x slot on my mobo, its a common old MSI K8N Neo Platinum with an althon 64 3.4Ghz.
Any recommendations much appreciated, or maybe an ebay listing of the card to check the price too. The one i mentioned goes for 50-70GBP new.


A:SATA PCI card for RAID

Which exact model are you talking about?

Do not buy an Adaptec HostRAID device - those are rebranded fakeraid cards, not real Adaptec products.

Actually, don't buy any fakeraid device - RAID5 on these is slow, 1990s desktop computer kind of slow. Excellent information on SATA RAID cards here:

If you look under drive properties tab for the LG in the Computer windows and the devices name and model number and type are listed then the SATA card is identifying the LG drive correctly. So the drive will play CD's? Will it do anything when you put a DVD in? Does the drive try to read it? Try a program like VLC VideoLAN - Official page for VLC media player, the Open Source video framework! This will play CD's, DVD's and Blu Ray discs. It is possible the LG drive is just plain DEAD ON ARRIVAL and does not work. Your SATA card will be fine with any SATA device as long as you don't try to boot from them without your main bios giving you the option as add in card.

Will I require a dedicated RAID card?

I have an EVGA 750i board with the nVidia chipset.

I currently have an Mtron SSD as my D: drive which I would like to make part of a RAID 0 pair.
This excellent drive averages about 100 megs/sec both reading and writing.
The UDMA6 bus of the motherboard clocks, of course, at 133 megs/sec.

Query: Assume a RAID setup can potentially both read and write at nearly 200 megs/sec.,
will employing the nVidia chipset's RAID controler limit it to less than 133 megs/sec,
such that I must also purchase a card like the Areca 1200 just to get my RAID off the
UDMA bus and onto the PCI-e bus (even if it is only 1x)? tia

I have SIIG Ultra 133 Raid Card plugged into my PCChips MC861G MB. 2 WD 160G drives, 1 with complete OS, 1 empty (formatted). No other drives. Without a Raid set machine boots fine off the 1st drive and sees both. If I create a Raid set according to the manual the machine will not see the drive (gives disk read error, tells me to hit ctrl+alt+delete). I sent an email to SIIG but no response yet. If I delete the Raid set the machine again boots fine, so the drive is not corrupted.

Anyone have any ideas or run into this before? I did not try creating the drive offline (the manual says not to). if that were required, then u couldn't run at all if a drive went bad until it was completely rebuilt - that is not what I want.

BACKSTORY: Tortuous process here, wanted to put a new RAID card in my main PC because i got a deal on a bunch of gently used 4Tb drives.

Got a PERC H310 card off ebay, working pull, re-arrange a couple things, and away we go.

so. many. issues! 3 reinstalls of 2 OSes, new RAM and SATA cables, 2 different PERC firmwares and 3 different drivers, I'm at my wit's end.

ISSUE: BSOD when performing file copy operations to the RAID drive. No issue with card disconnected.

QUESTIONS: Is this fixable, or is the card borked? If it's fixable, how?

Dump logs attached per forum instructions. this OS install is only a few days old so it dosnt have all updates.


Hi ZeikHunter,

Welcome to the 7forums

Please ensure that Windows gets up to date a.s.a.p.

Please check your SSD for firmware updates.

Please make sure all your partitions have at least 15% free space to be on the safe side with Windows doing background stuff.

What are the specs of your memory? I cannot find any site with the right model.
I'm asking because you state in your system specs that you are running 2133MHz, but your motherboard does not support higher than 2000MHz which is OC for your motherboard.
The dumps say something else, but that is currently not relevant.

Hi, I bought a VIA 6421 chipset raid card, apparently it has been sucking for me. I tried booting up my computer today and yesterday, it doesn't detect the card.
Would it be my motherboard or the card? I'm planning on getting a new motherboard anyways WITH sata/ide and raid included.

Also, if I get the new motherboard and put the hard drives in, would I have to format because it doesn't detect the raid? For ex, if I got a new raid card would I have to format the drives because I'd have to make a new array?


(PS im looking for a dfi lanparty nf2 board if anyone has one for sale)

A:A good sata/ide raid card?

Pretty much all integrated SATA controllers suck unless you buy a high end workstation motherboard In my experience, Silicon Image is the worst SATA "RAID" chip maker.

Yes, as a rule, fakeraid controllers have model-specific configuration information and they don't work with arrays created by some other controller.

I'm a computer nerd with moderate experience in computers(In no way related to IT), I have built, troubleshoot, Quality Control, many computers. However, when it comes to stuff that people are using in business, Virtual machines, Massive server Racks, Infrastructure. I would have very minimal understanding of such things.

(the Computer is a Core 2 Duo with 8GB ram, with 5 WD REDs)

What I want to know is on a topic regarding RAID cards. People use them because of redundancies so all data is safe from hard drive failure. My question is that, How long is the lifespan of a RAID card, and What kind of RAID card replacement (be specific)would one need to look for if their current one fails, (to allow your current array to still be used). Also, is it practical to use it for home file servers when running RAID 5 or should I just use software RAID?

Thanks in advance
: D

A:Solved: RAID Card Practical?

You can check the manufacturer's website for their estimated MTBF but you can have a card fail straight out of the box, to a few hours, to months, years, or even decades. I have some HP RAID cards going over 10 years and I have a failed Dell Perc4 that was closing in on 10 years. I also have several Adaptec controllers that didn't make it past 3 to 5 years. You generally have to stay with the same manufacturer to migrate RAID arrays and many will have a list posted on which cards can be used for migration as well. But migration shouldn't also be a given nor should RAID ever be considered a full safe guard for data or as a substitute for a true and proper backup. You can also have complete data corruption if the controller fails or in some bad cases lose all your data even if a single drive fails. And don't forget that anything beyond RAID-1 makes data recovery harder as you need multiple drives to rebuild the data.

RAID generally doesn't make sense for a home user; RAID is best suited for an environment that requires little to no downtime. RAID-1 isn't too bad as cost isn't that bad and recoverability and migration is easier but you still need a proper backup and for most people a backup is the better and safer solution anyway.

Home RAID solutions, either those built into the motherboard or those cheap RAID capable cards are nowhere on the same level of performance or reliability as expensive RAID controllers. Even if you place an expensive RAID controller into a home system that doesn't guarantee no downtime if you use standard home/off-the-shelf hardware. What makes RAID make sense in a business class server is that the whole server is built to higher standards and offers much higher reliability.

I am trying to do an XP Pro repair install but I cannot get the machine to boot from the cdrom. I have two hard drives running on a raid card and the cdrom is on the motherboard IDE-0 channel. It seems the raid card is over-riding the bios and ignoring the boot options I am setting.

I should mention that the raid card is not configured as a raid controller, I'm just using it to get extra IDE channels.

Hi guys,

Just picked up an XFX Revo64 SATA RAID card from eBay in the hope of adding some extra SATA ports to my HTPC to add some extra storage.

Plugged the card in and connected a working HDD to it and nothing happened. Had a look at Device Manager which is finding a "Mass Storage Controller" but cannot seem to set it up properly and cannot find any drivers for it.

Upon doing some Googling it seems that XFX didn't make any actual drivers for this card so I am now a little stumped as to what I can try next. I have tried running a program called SlimDrivers to try and find a driver that way but to no avail.

Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

Many thanks!

I want to swap out my promise parallel raid card for a silicon image raid card without having to reload my OS.

Is there a seamless way to load the new silicon image raid driver into WinXP, then swap the card itself and boot back up??
Any help is appreciated!

A:How do I seamlessly swap a raid card?

Seamless? Probably not.

Here's something that will probably work, but it's not seamless. Install the Silicon Image raid drivers on the current setup. Do an Image backup with something like Acronis True Image or Norton GHOST to a non-RAID drive. Install the new RAID controller, restore the image back to the new RAID array, and boot up.

I've installed a couple of RAID systems by first installing the O/S onto a non-RAID drive, then GHOSTing it to the RAID array after the fact. Worked just fine...

I've just added a SATA RAID card (Semlos 4 Ports PCI Sata Internal Raid Controller Card Sil3114 Chipset with 2 Sata Cables: Computers Accessories) but when I boot up the PC sees the new card but doesn't see SATA portsthe motherboard (so I'm left with 4 SATA ports as opposed to the 6 I had )?

Should I be able to use the onboard SATA ports and the new card?


A:Adding a SATA RAID card

I have no recent experience with this, but I'd expect that you should be able to use both onboard and add-on SATA ports. (Lots of motherboards have third-party SATA controllers. Functionally the same as an add-in card, although the bits are soldered to the motherboard.)

Does the BIOS setup show anything about the onboard SATA controller?

(I'm desperately trying to avoid joking about using a PCI card. I don't recall when I last owned a motherboard with a PCI slot.)

Yes, it is never a good idea to do that.
Check to see if you have the Intel Matrix Storage Manager software installed, it should be in the Start> All Programs group, if so launch it, the specific error should be in there, you may have to poke around in the software to find it.

If it is not installed, get it here and install it.

Most likely the error has corrected itself.

When i install the card it seems to get installed fine in the device manager and with the raid configurerer application that went with the driver.

But the card just doesn't recognize any harddisks. There's no change when plugging a harddisk in it. The application also seems to think that there's 4 channels on the card(there are 2) and they all show as a big red "?".

I've looked everywhere for a driver, and the newest one is a part of the old via chipset driver: 'VIA_HyperionPro_V524A'

Is it a proper Win7 driver i need ? and are there such?

Extra: chip: VIA VT6421

The attached is the raid configurerer software with the question marks and 4 channels.

A:PCMCIA Via sata1 raid card 7driver?

How does the fake raid controller look in the device manager? Any errors?

What about in disk management? Can you assign a drive letter?

If you want to be running in RAID mode with the drives, you have to set that up before Windows loads. See the documentation that came with the card.

Most cards have two versions of the driver. One for use without RAID and one for with. You can still use the RAID driver if you want to use drives as simple volumes (without RAID.)

Guys, when I start to load XP from the boot disks and it
prompts me to hit F6 so I can load the driver for my RAID
card,...I do, but it ignores it. It continues on as if I
never pushed F6???? Help? email me - [email protected]
Thanks - Josh

Are you pressing F6 before the splash screen comes up? Never installed RAID, but do you have the option of installing Via Add/Remove hardware wizard in Control Panel?

this is a commen issue with raid cards. i once had an issue with a scsi raid card with an IBM server. what u can do is get the drivers for the scsi raid card for your server & put in floppy disk & boot to it, that should fix it.

The card installed fine, but when I connect some disks to it I get an error is device manager:
"This device cannot start. (Code 10)". I'm running Windows 7. I've refreshed the driver (windows says it has the latest driver installed). I've also tried uninstalling the driver and reinstalling. The driver version is 7.0.9600.6352.

First post.. I just installed Windows 7 and for the most part all went ok. The only issue I seem to be having concerns my Rosewill RC-200 IDE raid card. Card works fine as an IDE card. However, I cannot get the raid functions to work.

The card uses a ?Silicon Image SiI 0680 ATA-133 Medley Raid Controller? chipset. The only thing I found a bit odd about the install was that W7 recognized the card and installed its own drivers instead of asking for drivers supplied by the manufacture. Not sure if this is an issue or not, but I have had to remove the raid set for now until I figure out what is wrong

Most of my hardware is new, MSI 770-C45 mobo, EVGA 9500GT video, Rosewill RC-200 PCI card.
I plan on calling the manufacture on Monday but thought I would check to see if anyone else has had this particular problem.

A:Rosewill RC-200 raid card issues with Windows 7

I recently bought a PCI ATA RAID Card from Scsi Drives, Two Pci Booting Dual Raid Ide One Card, Compusa so I could add an Iomega ZIP drive to my computer without loosing one of my other drives I learned that it wouldn t work that way so I connected my primary slave hard drive to the RAID card and made the ZIP drive the new PS drive Everything works fine But what I want to do now is somewhat complicated I currently run Windows XP Pro SP on Two Ide Drives, One Scsi Raid Pci Card, Dual Booting the Primary Master drive hereafter quot drive quot and I use the second hard drive which used to be the PS but now is connected to the RAID card for storage hereafter quot drive Two Ide Drives, One Scsi Raid Pci Card, Dual Booting quot Both drive have a single partition formatted in NTFs I want to setup a dual boot with Windows SE XP Pro I know that Windows must be on the first partition of the boot drive So I want to move Drive to the RAID card then create a FAT partition on Drive where I will install Windows What makes it so complicated I really really do not want to have to reformat repartition or otherwise damage the data on either drive though the data on Drive could be burned to a CD and restored after any such formatting Additionally my experience with RAID setups is extremely limited Any help would be appreciated My head starts hurting even when I m just thinking about this

A:Two Ide Drives, One Scsi Raid Pci Card, Dual Booting

First off, don't add the Zip drive to the primary IDE channel as it probably works at only 33MHz. This will force your primary IDE master device, the boot hard drive, to slow down from 100MHz to 33MHz. You didn't say why you didn't hook up your zip drive to the secondary IDE channel, but I suppose its because you already have 2 optical drives occupying it.

You might try moving what is now your slave optical drive to the RAID controller and configure it to be a master, then configure the zip drive to be the slave device on the secondary IDE channel. You also didn't say why the zip drive didn't work on the RAID controller. It should have worked, other than for the fact that zip drives have always been problematic to hook up.

As for creating a dual-boot setup, you may have to bite the bullet and be prepared to wipe drive 1, create 2 partitions on it and format the first physical partition to use FAT for 98SE and the second to be NTFS for XP. This can all be done by using an XP install disk without actually installing XP into the first partition. Once the partitions are set up, install '98 onto the first partition. Then install XP onto the second partition. XP is smart enough to detect the existing '98 OS and pop up a screen at boot time to select which OS you want to boot up.

Note that this configuration keeps drive 2 unchanged as the slave device on the primary IDE channel. I hope this helps.

Hi semillerimages, welcome to Seven Forums.

I myself use raid10 on the onboard controller of my motherboard at the moment
but i've been looking at a seperate raid card as well.
As I understand it the best way to go is to have a complet hardware controlled raid card
that's platform independent (has it's own cpu and onboard memory)
What I read is the best one's are from Areca, 3ware or LSi.
It also depends on what you can afford because good ones are quite expensive.

I've found that a once usable PCI card with SATA ports is not recognized by Win7 discovery. This discovery is necessary before drivers can be installed.

These cards are old and may need setup by some sort of Raid discovery as in the old F6 option
for Windows XP.

to get the SATA four port card "discovered" under Win7 x64?

I have one but have not used it yet. I read in reviews on Newegg that you install it with nothing connected then startup and see if windows recognizes it and installs the drivers or go through the finding new hardware part. After it is recognized and installs drivers, then shutdown and install the hard drives to it. Guess we'll have to see if that works. If it needs drivers, I believe they are the Marvell 91xx drivers.

I ordered a 3620 with 2 hard drives configured for RAID 0. It has already shipped. I realize now that I made a mistake and should have ordered the RAID 1 configuration. I realize this will reduce my total drive capacity.
Also, I'm planning on adding a 3rd HDD that I do not wanted to be included in the RAID. Any help on switching RAID levels and adding the 3rd drive would be appreciated. I'm expecting the machine to arrive tomorrow.

I am running 7 pro 64bit on a ASUS p8p67 deluxe mobo and I copied all data from my 1tb storage D: drive to a backup external and proceded to install raid 5 with 3 single 1tb drives and the raid is up an running. However using Intel Rapid Storage Technology to setup the raid inside windows I had to use the drive letter R: because D: was not available in the list option. When I start some programs, the program is looking for the data on D: drive. Is there any way to change the letter of my raid storage from R: to D:?


A:RAID 5 switched from single storage to raid 5, lost drive letter

It's possible the cd-rom/dvd drive assigned itself as d: before the new raid was created.
This should be solvable using the windows disk management tool if that's the case.

Is it possible to use a separate hard disk for your OS and programs with data storage on a RAID Array consisting of two (or more) identical hard disks?

Would the system disk need to be the same size as the disks used for the RAID Array?

could I add an internal non-raid hard disk drive to my computer and leave my other hard disk drives in a raid configuration ASUS tech support said that I could add optical DVD CD drives to my SATA connections on my mobo is that correct The mobo manual does not indicate that I can so I don t know if I should believe the tech guy or not unless the information is buried deeply and briefly in the manual - I sure can t find it in the manual My IDE controller on the mobo seems to be failing so I want to replace my IDE dvd and cd drives with SATA optical drives DVD Burner Lite - on LH- A H- CD Burner Lite - on LH- R P- Case Silverstone SSTemjinTJ CPU Intel Core Duo E Conroe GHz M shared L Cache LGA Processor CPU Cooler ZALMAN LED configuration?

I have a computer running XP which was built with a pair of GB hard drives which have met their limit in terms of free space so the user is wanting to upgrade These drives appear to be running in some kind of RAID setup via the motherboards built in RAID feature not a PCI card running this setup This is the first time I ve encountered a RAID setup in a home-based PC One other minor problem I have is this motherboard an Asus ABN-VM only has two SATA ports which are both used so I m going to have to clone to an external drive as an image file and then connect the new single GB drive and clone back drives) clone Need RAID to mirror non-RAID, a single to a HD (two from that image to the new drive However come to think of it I have an adapter that Need to clone a RAID mirror (two drives) to a non-RAID, single HD would allow me to connect the new drive to the PC via USB so scratch that concern I guess I decided to take the plunge and see what Clonezilla would do with the external USB drive I Need to clone a RAID mirror (two drives) to a non-RAID, single HD have and the two GB drives in the PC When the main menu appeared I told it that I wanted to work in device to image mode and then told it to mount all drives It then asked me Need to clone a RAID mirror (two drives) to a non-RAID, single HD to select the drive I wanted to use as the source but it presented both drives as individual drives not a single mirror as I was expecting the motherboard to present it as So don t know what to do from here Perhaps there s another cloning utility out there I could run from within Windows or could boot from a disc that would recognize this array and clone it to a single drive properly Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated Thanks in advanced nbsp

A:Need to clone a RAID mirror (two drives) to a non-RAID, single HD

If the drives are mirrored then imaging one drive should be all you need. If the drives are striped then the two drives are being combined together to make ~160GB drive.

I guess to determine this, what is the capacity of the main 'logical' drive? 80 or 160'ish?
