Software: Intel Storage Utility 4.5 (4.5.6515)
OS: Windows XP SP2
1st HD in RAID1 ARRAY: WDC-WD800JD-00LSA0
2nd HD NON-RAID (I need it to be in RAID1 with 1st HD) : WDC-WD800JD-75MSA3 (BRAND NEW OUT OF PACKAGE)
Connected 2nd HD above to computer and started so that I could get the 2nd to be a REBUILD to the RAID1 Array to replace a failed HD.
Get the message " "The selected disk is not large enough to be used for this rebuild action. Insert a larger disk" when I right click on the 2nd HD and select "Rebuild to this disk"
When I right click on the 1st HD in Windows Explorer and choose Properties is says the capacity is 74.5gb. The 2nd HD shows 74.4gb. There is nothing on the 2nd HD except the System Volume Information that shows up after a format. FYI: I got the same rebuild error before the drive was formatted also. (Just raw new drive inserted)
Using SeaTools for DOS I tried to use the advanced features to "Set Capacity to MAX NATIVE". This said is was successful, but when I tried to rebuild again with Intel Storage Utility Software in windows, I received the same error. I then went back into SeaTools and drive the same process again, but it got an error the 2nd time.
I also noticed, while in SeaTools for DOS, that the Capacity for the 1st HD read: 80.026gb and the 2nd read 80.000gb.
So, what can I do to get this to work for a rebuild?
