I put two new disk drives in and tried to get the old array to sync up a 2nd time but no go. Tried resetting the array in the BIOS and using Testdisk to rebuild the partition but it wouldn't do it - one drive just slowly died to the point it was unusable. Maybe I could have hit the offending drive with some freeze spray to get it back to some vestige of life, but screw it - I'll just start over - I didn't lose all that much - was able to get off a lot of important files before it died altogether.<br><br>Lesson learned - backup, backup, and then backup again. I just never expected such a new box to die so soon. Also, after putting in two new drives, I again set them to RAID - 0 and after powering down, removing the old
drives and starting up again, the new RAID - 0 was broken! Whatever performance increase I might have gotten from striping just isn't worth it - reconfigured it with RAID - 1. Maybe 4 drives in a RAID - 10 would be ok, but no room for two extra drives in this box. To get a real performance boost I'll just wait six more months until the Intel X25 Flash drives drop in price. Guess I'd not recommend anyone configure two drives in a RAID - 0. Seems it's highly sensitive to errors breaking the array. Once the array is broken it's near impossible to retrieve data using any of the utilities out there. I hear that a newer version of the Intel Matrix RAID manager allows fixing broken arrays, but didn't try it. Not sure if that is a BIOS or Windows only solution.<br><br>...Jeff<br><br>--- On <b>Fri, 11/20/09, Kris Moore <i><email@example.com></i></b> wrote:<br><blockquote style="border-left: 2px solid rgb(16, 16,
