I have upgraded my machine from Windows 7 to Windows 8 and then Windows 8.1 (this is the only available upgrade path to keep my files, settings AND applications).
My system is setup as follows:
- 2 x Corsair Force 3 SSD (RAID 0) - C:
- 2 x WD HDD (Raid 1) - D:
- 2 x WD HDD (Raid 1) - Z:
When I open windows defrag, ALL volumes (C/D/Z) are detected as media type: 'Solid State Drive' and I am unable to defragment the D and Z drives.
Also, for some reason, every reboot I get around 10 events in my event log:
NTFS (Ntfs): A corruption was discovered in the file system structure on volume Z:.
Volume Z: (\Device\HarddiskVolume7) requires an Online Scan. An Online Scan will automatically run as part of the next scheduled maintenance task. Alternatively you may run "CHKDSK /SCAN" locally via the command line, or run "REPAIR-VOLUME -SCAN" locally or remotely via PowerShell.
Whatever I try to fix these errors (chkdsk / chkdsk /scan / chkdsk on boot, etc.) It NEVER finds any errors. But everytime I boot and/or access the Z volume, it comes up with these NTFS errors.
So, my two questions:
How can I force (manually / automatic) Windows 8.1 to detect my 2 Raid1 arrays (HDD's) to be detected as HDD instead of Solid State Drive.
Why does it give ntfs errors, but never finds those errors using chkdsk?
