Assigned Letters to Drive Keeps Disappearing
Last night I got my 2nd Samsung F3 and decided to set up a Raid array with them. When I had them in Raid-0 and installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 and everything seemed just fine.
When I got to my desktop I wanted to restart to see how my SSD was doing then when I got back to my desktop my Raid-0 was gone. I checked Disk Management and it was there, detected but the letter I assigned it was gone. I tried deleting the array and recreating it but each time I restarted my computer , the letter I would assign it would be gone.
So I decided to take them out of Raid and the new F3 I got worked just fine, plugged it in and it was good to go. The one that I had been using for about a month , for some reason did not want it's assigned lettering to stay! This is quite frustrating because I would expect the new drive to be faulty than the one I've been using for a month to start doing this.
What I've tried:
All of my Sata ports
Different Sata cable
Could this be a faulty drive? Did trying to set them up in Raid-0 destroy this drive or something?
