PLS Help Raid Degraded on win7 64bit Tags: NAS / RAID Boot Storage Last response: February 23, 2010 3:39 PM in Storage Share justmytime February 5, 2010 1:26:37 AM 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 :-) More about : pls raid degraded win7 64bit Anonymous a b G Storage February 5, 2010 7:49:37 PM 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. (http://www.tomshardware.com/news/RAID-5-Doomed-2009,652...) I also have 4X160GB Maxtor/Highpoint RAID5 that has been alive and well for over 4 years. justmytime February 6, 2010 1:40:29 AM Though that might be the case whats the warranty like with Seagate ?

Perhaps you should boot with Ubuntu, and recover the RAID there. Is there any data on the RAID0 you would like recovered? justmytime February 23, 2010 3:39:18 PM 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 Can't find your answer ?
