Two mornings have passed by now where I wake up and check my email only to find my Windows computer "discovering" my hardware RAID 1 drive. It pulls up the "Autoplay" options as if it was just plugged in. The strange part is my RAID 1 consists of two HDD's plugged into my motherboard over SATA. I have no clue what this means, but I can at least say that the two times this has happened was when I first interacted with the computer in the morning (About 4 days between occurrences). When this does happen, recent writes to my RAID are completely gone. I am losing data in a RAID 1....
- My computer and hard drives do not go to sleep ever:
- Here is my RAID drive (F) shown in the Computer Management view:
- I am running a hardware RAID on my Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3 motherboard
Any ideas on how I can diagnose this? I am fearing that one day my RAID 1 will explode and I will lose all my data. Any ideas on the problem? Any ideas on what will happen if this eventually gets worse? Is there a chance that I will lose all data if the RAID controller dies?
