I have a few problems with a raid 0+1 setup using the following:
Epox 8k5a3+ W/4ch HPT374.
2 x WD1200JB - 75CRA0 firmware 16.06V16 (shown as 119.99GB each)
2 x WD1200JB - 00CRA1 firmware 17.07W17 (shown as 120.03GB each)
4 x rounded ATA133 cables
Windows XP pro SP1 on SCSI U160 controller and drive.
(See link below for more system info)
Basically I can't format the array successfully after its created, it will go to 99.9% before failing which is some time over 223gb .
Each of the drives check out fine with Western Digitals disk tools but I cannot test the array itself. I have also had the Highpoint wrong driver version experience , so I now have that under control.
I will mention I had the raid 0+1 array setup and working previously with the same hardware. I had two partitions on the volume although one partition at the start of the drive had continual errors which caused data corruption and this is why I disassembled it.
Anyway, maybe I am missing something and I would appreciate any advice, thankyou.
Sure thing, right after you send me ya credit card number and the expiry date! :tongue: lol
Well I have tried 2 drives in raid 0, 4 drives in raid 0 and that works perfectly, with the raid 1, 0+1 etc it will create and duplicate the raid array alright, but it just wont allow me to format it in either Windows disk management and Partition magic 8.
