Software raid 5 Tags: NAS / RAID File Server Software Storage Last response: October 17, 2012 7:12 PM in Storage Share lakz September 23, 2012 11:11:52 PM Hello, I want to turn my HTPC into a file server and stuff it with 4 x 3TB drives in RAID 5. However, my Asus e45m1-i deluxe does not have a RAID controller, and Windows 7 does not support Raid 5. Is there any good software solution out there? Thanks.
