Running on RAID

Posted in Geek Mode at Thursday, 18 August 2005 15:29 W. Europe Daylight Time

Yesterday, almost six weeks after my primary hard drive crashed, I received a repaired replacement. During this time I used a newly bought one (the same model) and set up Windows to be RAID-ready. This means that the RAID option was enabled in the BIOS and Intel RAID drivers for the ICH6R chipset were installed, although there was only one drive mounted. I used the convenient Intel Application Accelerator to migrate the single-drive solution to a RAID 1 array today. The whole process took about two hours. In the meantime I was able to use Windows without limitations. Pretty neat.

I hope the next time a hard drive fails, some software component will inform me about the failure and suggests what to to next. Nevertheless, I hope this won't happen (soon).
