Windows 7: Sticky Notes content lost - any chance to recover?

Hi Mike,

While not debating the quality of the RAID controller, because that's a huge issue in and of itself, RAID0 is only for speed while accepting the extra risk of data corruption due to the increased complexity (including the fact that the data is spread amongst two fallible drives instead of only one). That's pretty much why newer versions of RAID were created.

And just because it's been around for years means absolutely nothing.

Thanks for taking the time to post here.

Regarding newer versions of RAID, I actually do not know what version is installed by Sony except it is not a shadow copy RAID mode. It could be a newer version but increased speed would be the goal. Regarding "fallible drives" are 3 month old SSD 250GB drives that fallible? I thought they were LESS fallible than traditional drives as they had little or no moving parts.

In any case, I will run sfc \scannow in case something is corrupt.

No, I don't mean to imply that at all. Basically I'm just saying that by adding more components to any system you increase the number of possible failure points. And I just wonder if the user would ever be able to perceive the speed benefits afforded by striping, considering he already uses very fast drives. But that's just me wondering. :) Maybe some gamers or video folks would be able to answer that...
