I've got an interesting problem that I can't quite figure out. I'm using dual Seagate Barracuda Green 2TB drives ( http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?name=st2000dl003-bcuda-green-sata-6gb-2tb-hd&vgnextoid=add6439d45c0b210VgnVCM1000001a48090aRCRD&locale=en-US ) in a RAID-1 setup on Z68 motherboard, Win7 SP1.
The drives are used for storage, so they periodically go to sleep. The trouble is that once they do, they often won't wake up - I get a drive seeking sound, stops, repeats. Eventually it does recover, but something seems wrong.
Easy, I figure one of the drives is dying. I take one drive out of RAID, same thing is happening. I take the other drive out of RAID, again the same behavior.
So, is anyone else running into this issue?
[Update: SMART tests on both drives outside of RAID are saying that everything is a-ok]
