Now that I've got my raid card. . . *problem*

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well, I just recently (less than a week ago) installed a new Highpoint Rocketraid 2770. I have 6x 1tb drives in a Raid 5 array, and another single drive on the card used for backups. Now, It seems that nearly every night, (im guessing around 6amISH) my raid 5 array will change icons on my 'my computer' and then basically become inaccessible.

Now, if I try and do a normal restart, i'll be sitting at 'windows is shutting down...' forever, so the only option left is a hard restart. I boot back up, and its fine.... Now, I'm sure theres got to be something wrong that it does this.


Also, another problem I'm having, is that because of this, my utorrent basically thinks, 'theres no drive, i'm going to corrupt myself' so my utorrent resets all of its settings, and all of my downloads are gone *LEGAL DOWNLOADS*.


Please help!

Thanks OCN

Did you test each drive or write end to end of the array to fully test array?
