Hello,Im running XP,asus M4A78T-E mb. set up for Raid 5. with 4 seagate 1T.hd: Today when turned on,it booted up ,screen mess. said "Problem detedted in array 3, and then went to a black screen with a blinking senser. I tried to boot it up again and it dose the same.Is it a bad HD? I unplug the HD that said 3 on the MB. and booted it up again and it said "problem detecetd in array 2"
Tks for any help.
its on a small business computer
I just went into "view Drive Assignments and it said for Drive mode 3 and then go down to number 3 and under "Assigment" it says LD 3-3 ON all the other drives it says under the "Assigment" it says SINGLE DISK.
So is this a bad hard drive?
Well we got most of the data recovered with some software off the net, cost 40 dollars. some companies wanted from 2 to 4 thousand dollars.
Now im looking at the back up machine called Drobo back up. Any one use it. Or im going to go with 4HD and use it as JOBOD. I have tried raid 5 once and that was ok Did have a hd break and replaced it and everything was fine, and raid 10 and that was the worst, almost lost every thing.
good luck to all
