Up till recently I was using a 5 disk, 2TB, Raid-0 without any problems. However I added another drive bringing it up to 6 disks. Now the Raid drops and I have to reboot Windows to get it back. This doesn't happen with 5 drives. I'm using a FakeRaid from my AMD 870-G45 mother board.
It drops when I do heavy data work such as multicore solid 7zip or copying data to a just(almost)-as-fast destination. If I copy a big sparse file from the Raid, it just dies. If I limit the copy speed the Raid remains stable. So I was wondering if this could be fixed by swapping to a Win7 Software Raid. Also, should I swap to a Span and take the speed hit for stability?
