Recycling some old hardware. Vista automatically install RAID drivers? Too easy to loose everything all at once. Hi Dave, thanks for the detailed response and advice. Should we connect our RAID drives on the same pairs, or different ones? The system should be stable when in a RAID 5 array using Write-back cache, and it isn’t at all, at least following a shutdown. Without that you will have always software raid, whether it is onboard or a controller card.


I woulnd’t have done it this way, i would have installed from scratch on rad existing raid 5 array. The two purple connectors are for the other controller.

That looks good to me. As for the 6 yellow ones, they seem to be gap-35-ds3r 3 pairs. However, if the combined space available when in RAID 1 is not enough for your needs, A more ideal setup would be to use either of the two drive sets you have in RAID1 for the OS probably the gb drives as I’d imagine they would be newer and install the OS on that. I recommend that you use the Intel raid controller.

Is your Raid Array green? I do have a few more questions though I’m yet to work in any organisation where any data loss is considered faid. I am using the Intel raid and it works flawlessly. The last bigabyte was because the power connector on one of the drives was accidently unplugged. Striping data is asking for trouble if the data is of ANY significance to your organisation.
