My PC locked up about 30min ago I waited about 20min before I was forced to do a hardshut down. On boot I saw in the raid bios a big red line.

On boot in to windows I went in to Intel Matrix Storage manger and saw this.

See screen shots what should I do to try and get the disk backup ?

Any ideas on help would be great :-)

I am currently facing the same situation for the THIRD time.

Click on the bad drive
write down the serial #
Locate the bad drive
Replace the bad drive
reboot and rebuild

Be prepared to go v e r y s l o w for 2-3 DAYS, while Intel takes it's time to recover the raid.
Also, be prepared for this to happen again.

My 4 TB RAID5 takes FIVE days to rebuild.
I am moving it to a pair of Raid 1.

The large drives are too susceptible to errors for RAID 5.

I also have 4X160GB Maxtor/Highpoint RAID5 that has been alive and well for over 4 years.

Though that might be the case whats the warranty like with Seagate ?

Big problem replaced the bad drive booted in to intel bios and then set new disk to be added to as replacement drive.

My 2 raid volumes

System_drive raid 0 failed
Secure_storage raid 5 rebuilding

So some how my system_drive other wise know as by boot drive is now showing as failed not sure what to do as windows will not boot

any ideas should i delete the system_drive and hope the drive will boot backup

A RAID0 has no redundancy, so you cannot boot with one disk.
Perhaps you should boot with Ubuntu, and recover the RAID there.
Is there any data on the RAID0 you would like recovered?

Thanks sub mesa what tools in ubuntu do you recommend ? so i know for next time

I recovered most of the data I needed on another machine, when I rebuilt the OS I saw in windows there is a option to recover from image (in win7 setup) do you know any recommendations for os imaging
