OK, it struck again!

Can't figure this f'n thing out! This time I was copying data from a USB stick to an internal HD then I decided to set up my automatic backup. I got that set up and it started it's backup to another internal HD and shortly after that... crash!

Both of the HDs are internal RAID 1 arrays and are two seperate arrays. So a total of 4 HDs plus my SSD in the machine.

Any thought of it being power related? Sounds odd to me, but just trying to correlate what just happened with a possible cause.

Personally, I find that Raid 1, and even more so, when software implemented, bring nothing but trouble to the table. Now if you had a Raid 5, hardware-implementation, AND you were running a data/file server computer, then that would be a wise decision.

I'll give it one more stab.

HOW TO POST A SNAPSHOT OF DISK MANAGEMENT DISPLAY
Run disk management:
WIN |
type DISKMGMT.MSC | ENTER
This method gives you a display without the unneeded navigation pane.
WIN=key with Microsoft logo on top.

Maximize the output of Disk Management:
Maximize the output of Disk Management:
ALT-Spacebar key combo | X key (selects Maximize) |
Drag the field separators (such as between Status and Capacity) to show entire field.


Make a snapshot:
WIN |
type SNIPPING | ENTER | New
Drag the cursor around the area you want to snip.
File | Save as | select save location and name | Save


Post the snapshot:

The two RAID 1 arrays are done through hardware in the P55 chipset.

Here's the screen shot. I didn't maximize because it didn't add anything and it kept the image smaller. If that eas an f-up on my part let me know and I'll re-post a maximized shot.

This is one user's attempt to explain why Raid is not backup.

You may find this article which will have more, interesting:

Good read and kind of what I already knew. I have important files backed up to remote locations.

This rig previously had a RAID 5 array with the 4 320GB disks in it. Well I suffered a double failure and felt the personal pain. I then bought the SSD for speed reasons and built up the OS as it stands today. I decided to re-purpose the 4 HDs and use them for something useful, since they were already in the system. I am using the one array as a location for my weekly backup as setup in Windows. THe other array is a place that I am going to use to store data that I don't want to clutter up my SSD with but is NOT of any great importance. It will be stuff that I'm not concerned about losing. Stuff I download and want to keep around to avoid having to re-download, but if it goes away, no biggie, I just re-download.

Here's some more food for thought.

Notice raid 1 will decrease your system write performance.

I'm dead serious when I recommend ditching raid. Make backups as you need, use MS SyncToy, use SkyDrive for on-system and cloud solutions.

OK, I can break up the RAID arrays and just use them as individual disks. I was just hoping to get some protection for the data, since I really don't need all that space.

I may set something up to back up to one drive then have that drive copied to another.

your raid will give you no protection. Raid is not a backup system.

Use the built-in Robocopy command to easily and rapidly copy from one drive to another.

However, if you would like to not change, I am performing some investigation on you problem. I make no promises.

Got interrupted when I found out that my Minidump folder had disappeared and by using my own write-up, did not get automatically created. Am running that down at the moment.

Wanted to give an update on how things are going.

My rig has been solid since I stopped using the RAID configuration on my MOBO. I still have HDs connected to the exact same ports. Seems odd to me that just the RAID portion was having issues, but I'm glad its solved!
