RAID-1 NTFS Corruption
Posted on 2006-06-21
My client has a SBS2003 server. Yesterday they reported it wasn't working. By the time that I got there it had been physically powered off and on a few times.
CHKDSK ran at startup and showed some major errors. I'm not sure if this was the original problem or was a secondary problem caused by the hard power off. Anyway, my question is as follows. The server has hardware RAID-1. In this scenario what you end up with is two bad drives, both with NTFS file system corrupt. Would software RAID-1 mirrored drives using dynamic disks give the same result, or might one of them stay intact?
