dropped S-ATA SILICON IMAGE s3112 raid configuiration [mirrored drives]
Posted on 2004-08-08
Hi, I have a Gigabyte GA-8KNXP M/B Pentium 3.0ghz cpu,ATI Radeon 9800 provideo card 1gig ddr400 ram two western digital 120gig 8mbcach S-ATA HDD'S. My problem is that when I set up the S-ATA sil s3112 as a mirrored raid set it worked perfectly three months later it dropped a hdd it still runs ok but at startup it tells me that I have a dropped raid. My question is how do I get the raid back to both be mirrored. I have tried the setup that it asks me to do but when in the program it will not let me do anything [silicon image program] If I want to change from mirrored to stripe do I have to reformat and start over again!!. I am using this system as a high end gaming pc, Which method is best for faster performance mirrored,stripe or mirrored plus stripe!!.
Any help on this matter would be appreciated.
