Raid Partition Erros
Posted on 2012-03-31
I purchased twp 3.0 TB drives to create a data drive in Windows XP Pro. I used a Silicon Image card sil3114 and the software to create a raid set then the partitions. I created 2 partitions in the raid set. Partition A was 1.9 gig Mirrored - Partition B was 760gb and striped to created a volume 1.4 gb. The raid failed. I'm trying to rebuild, but I cannot delete the partitions on both drives. One of the drives is reporting a size of 753gb. It will not show the 3.0 TB size.
I downloaded EASEUS Partition Master to see if that would fix the issue. It did not. I also tried DiskPart in Win7 and using the command to 'clean all' to wipe the drives. No luck. I know Windows XP has a 2 TB limit. So my 1st partition has to be 1.9.
Is there a program that I can use to restore the full size of the drive so I can create the partitions again or delete the partitions cleanly.
Thank you in advance for a quick response.
