Raid 0 problem
Posted on 2004-08-27
I have recently upgraded from windows me to windows 2000.
My problem is that Windows 2000 does not like my raid array.
I have two 40gig drives in a striped array but windows kept saying there was problems with saving to it.
I backed up my data and tried to reformat the array using paragon partition manager but during the 'scaning disk surface' part of the operation it was finding so many bad clusters it would never have finished.
I suspected that this was not the case so I used a program called killdisk which is supposed to erase the entire disk so it is as new. The next time I tried to reformat the array it didnt find any bad clusters but when it had finished scanning the disk it said the disk had an i/o error.
In order to prove to myself that the disks are not damaged I have reformatted them both as individuall drives and they work fine, its just when I try to set up an array that I have problems.
Can anybody help?? I am using a promise fasttrak 100-lite raid controller which came with my motherboard. Motherboard is an L7VTA and hard disks are maxtor 7200rpm ata133.
