I have a new Client running a Dell server with a Perc6 Controller.  The are also running a SQL Server 2008.  I noticed today that there are around 20 .chk files on the root C: drive with an associated .Txt ; I have seen Chkdsk create these file with a prefix of filexx but here, they are random number prefix.  I also noticed that around 20 of these files types are also in the recycle bin which is a real mystery because nobody deleted them.  Does this mean I may have to replace one of the Raid Hard disks if I can figure out which one is bad first or is some kind of normal behavior from the sequel server.

You should run some diagnostic scans over the drive first - chkdsk /f /r

Only issue with this type of troubleshooting is when your able to restart the server - after hours normally.

As far as the RAID status is concerned, there should be a RAID utility you can install to get that info (alternatively you can enter the RAID configuration utility during the boot process)

I did the chkdsk and it fixed some error in the free space.  I wil see if this worked by keeping a close watch on the C: to see if there are any more .chk files created.
