I just rebooted my computer and upon logging into Windows, things seemed a little bit "off". I figured out rather quickly that everything was like it was two weeks ago. It was literally like everything I had done on my computer the last two weeks didn't happen.
I have 2x 750 GB hard drives in a software RAID on Windows 7 Professional. Everything has seemed fine up until now, and I have not seen any error messages related to hard drive failures.
I opened Disk Management, and I see the following information:
Disk 0, Dynamic, Online 100 MB system reserved, 700 GB C:\ - status: "Failed redundancy" Disk 1, Dynamic, Foreign (no more info, grayed out) Missing, Dynamic, Missing 100 MB system reserved, 700 GB C:\ - status: "Failed redundancy" (identical to Disk 0, except the "Missing" part)
I have no other disks in my setup, so I assume Disk 1 is really the missing disk that for some reason isn't recognized as part of the array.
Any ideas what happened here? Even if it was just a disk failure, why hadn't the other disk been updated for roughly two weeks? At least one of the disks work obviously, since I booted successfully (albeit into the past - really "back to the future" moment for me...).
Update: The event log says unexpected shutdown last night (I usually leave my computer on, and I just assumed Windows Update was the reason I was no longer logged in when I came this morning).
