We have a Windows XP system with an AMD mainboard (GA-890GPA-UD3H) and we are using the onboard RAID capability. The system is configured in RAID 1 (using the tool AMD RAIDXpert). It consists of two 500GB Samsung HD502IJ hard drives.
The problem is that the array is failing often. The error message given is:
Logical drive goes critical. Therefore, the drives are not mirrored any more.
I can rebuild the drives, but this does not help a lot. The error repeats irregularly/erratically. Sometimes it fails after 3 days, sometimes after 7 days, so it's not stable.
What's the problem and how do I prove it? I can get S.M.A.R.T information on the drives and they are fine individually.
