    Question RAID Question

    I have a faulty EX58-Extreme. If I replace it with a second, will I be able to recover my RAID0+1 files?

    Cant see what not. Just make sure you have got the new one up to the same BIOS version and set up everything as you had it on the old one. Should work. Shouldn't it?

    Mate in your other thread LSDMEASAP has told you it will be fine, if you dont believe the Gigabyte forum mod then why bother coming on here? Your RAID will be super sweet, just set it up zacly how it was.

    Raid0+1 means that the striped drives are mirrored. As long as you have a complete stripe, you should be able to get your files. I assume you were using 4 drives?

    Doc,

    Please allow me to educate you. RAID 0 is called striping, which uses multiple drives for storage of data. RAID 1 is mirroring, which uses an even number of drives for 1:1 copy.

    RAID 0+1 is a combination of striping and mirroring (minimum four drives).

    @NimrodAUS
    I don't have disregard for LSDMEASAP's response, although I am concerned that I will be unable to ascertain the correct sector size if I would be required to recreate the RAID.
    -

    The thread question is moot currently, because GB will repair and return the same board, which should maintain my previous RAID config. I decided to order an X58M + HDD as an interim b/u... due in part to the poor coding of GB's 'bootblock' which their programmers decided had no necessity of actually reading removable storage drives for an image. Said programmers also found no reason to provide a remedy for the inability to write an HPA image to a replacement H.D.D., if the original drive had a failure. We'll see how the '2-3 weeks of repair time, after shipment time and before return shipment' yields a result.

    P.S. Dual BIOSes, Virtual BIOS, Bootblock BIOS Restore... and they're all valued slightly less than a handful of nothing. Possibly the last time I buy the company's products, let alone their most expensive consumer board offered.

    You are correct, which is why I edited my earlier post.

    P.S. I think you meant Stripe size, not sector.
