Chkdsk on RAID 5

I have an IBM x364 - ServeRAID 7k - 6 73GB 15K SCSI Drives - One Logical RAID 5 Volume

Getting some errors when copying larges files, so I ran chkdsk in read-only mode and detected some errors.  When the volume was dismounted chkdsk reported no errors.  Has anyone ever ran into this?  Firmware on raid controller is up-to-date, but I think the device driver for the ServeRAID 7k may need to be updated.  Anyone have any suggestions on how to go about resolving this issue.

It may have been a one time issue.

I would run chkdsk in read only mode again.

Also do not forget that when mounted, there is a posibility that there will be temporary inconsisetncies until all caches are flushed.

I hope this helps !

Try using vrfydsk.exe from the windows resource kit instead.
