Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

Hmm I never have any problems with my software RAID0.

Good descriptions of all the RAID set ups here. RAID - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

My 2 main HDD are Sata but I also run 2 IDE HDD in software Raid-1 mirroring.
It's my drive E:\ and I use it to put all my drivers, software installs and tools. I have been using it for many months, no problems.

Today when I went into disk management to help someone else, it showed both of the physical HDD in the Raid as failed. But it was still functioning as normal when using it in Windows.

So I told disk management to rebuild the array and it took like 5-10 minutes to "synchronize", as it was saying. Then it completed and Raid was all well again.

And that's what happened. lol
