Hey guys, I am back,and of course I need assistance! I have a gigabyte ga870-ud5 board, and I have a software raid built into the board! I have a raid 5, and have a drive failure. Now I have an extra drive, but I can't figure out which drive has failed. They are all the same type, and I am running windows 7! Someone help! Thank you!

Did the failed drive also fail SMART? Restart you system with SMART enabled in the BIOS and look for the failed drive. The BIOS should identify to which SATA port the failed drive is connected.

How do I find out what drive it is... according to my bios, it is still considered one solid drive. how do i separate and figure out which one.
