    I am using 4 WD Raptor drives in a RAID 10. Twice the RAID has been
    corrupted and the Bios tells me that I have two RAID 10's. I can still boot
    to Vista (32) from each 2 disk set. One - has anyone else seen this happen?
    Two - is there an easy way to rebuild the array or do I have to clone the
    drive(s) and rebuild the array and then clone back? Thanks....Tom

    Is it just me, or did that guy just admit to only selling rubbish RAID
    arrays?
    And did he just compare the hassle of a degraded RAID array (where
    you'll get a warning when the computer boots, and the system will
    automatically sort out the problem in the background while you work
    normally) with a hard drive failure resulting in complete data loss?

    I'd say that's not a good place to buy a computer from!

    Do you have iTunes installed?

    All of the people in the link that have experienced this are using Intel
    chipset RAID controllers so it may not apply.

    Kerry: No I hadn't gotten to installing iTunes yet, but thanks for the
    warning. Tom
