I have two 1TB drives in a RAID 1 setup using Windows 7 because my motherboard doesn't support SATA III RAID. My questions revolve around the re-sync of the drives. My system seems to re-sync the drives at least weekly and it's a time consuming process that obviously comandeers the drives making anything that requires CPU/GPU/HDD run extremely slow and choppy.
When does Windows determine the need to re-sync? Is there a way to schedule the re-sync to avoid heavy work times? Why does it re-sync? It would seem that mirroring should write to both simultaneously.
Suggestions for a better solution than Windows mirroring?
