Approximately every time I reboot my computer I got drive D: in read only mode.
To turn read only mode off I run the following:
1) Open RUN (Win button + R button)
4) select volume d
5) attributes volume clear reaonly
Sometimes this still does not work and I'm doing 5) several times until it works.
The main question is: what needs to be done so that every time I turn on my computer to see read only turned off?
Optional question: why do I need to do 5) several times.
Optional question: is in general RAIID from Motherboard reliable? I'm using frequently Visual Studio (like a text editor) and I'm used to make a lot of saving (Ctrl-S) over short periods. During these short periods I am prompted with a Save As... file dialog because it seems that the file is blocked. I'm sure that this is not from Visual Studio because I use it also at work (no RAID) and it does not give me Save As... dialog. If you consider that MB RAID is a bad idea then can you propose a better solution (for budget ~100$)?
I'm a web software developer (ASP.NET) and I'm not familiar with system administration.
My system config:
MB: Gigabyte 965P-DQ6
HDD: 2 x WD RE3 250GB (RAID 0 - from MB) + 1 x WD 2500KS 250GB
OS: Windows 7 x64
CPU: Intel E6600
RAM: Kingston 6GB (dual channel)
C: and D: on RAID0 --> D: volume is the problem here! C: works and has Windows on it
E: on WD2500KS
Let me know if you need additional system details or other things.
This is a problem reported, not so frequently, across some forums but I haven't seen any solution until now. So I'm still keeping in writing those lines.
I encountered the same problem on Window Vista so this is the reason I wrote also Window Vista in addition to Windows 7.
