A Sony VAIO I am troubleshooting has two Samsung MMDPE56GQDXP-MVB 128GB 1.8" SSDs in a RAID 0 configuration.
The BIOS RAID Utility at start up, and the Intel Rapid Storage Technology under Windows 7 both reported an error on one of the drives. No details about the nature of the error, just that the drive was in an error state.
In the Intel RST software I was able to reset the drive's state to normal. This also apparently reset the error in the BIOS RAID utility as it no longer comes up.
Now I am concerned about the health of the drive. Is there a utility that could be used, perhaps from Sony, that would test the drive and maybe offer some more helpful information? I have searched at Sony's site but come up with nothing so far.
Also, any general advice on how to proceed would be appreciated. The owner of the VAIO has experienced some random shutdowns, and unable to find any other indications (memory and other hardware tests, including the drives which came up normal, etc) I am guessing the reported drive error may be related. Thanks.
