    Hello Nigel

    Thank you, I stand corrected I have RAID 1 applied the (2) 500GB Drive
    act as (1) Drive, I am using the Intel Matrix Storage Console that i
    part of my HP PC. If (1) drive fails I am protected

    Thank you


    - RAID 0 (striped disks) distributes data across several disks in
    - RAID 1 (mirrored disks) could be described as a backup solution
    - RAID 5 (striped disks with parity) combines three or more disk

    Hello Ke

    Thank you, I have RAID 1, I have (2) 500GB Drives but they act as (1
    so if the primary hard drive fails the secondary drive takes over

  3. You're welcome. But if the purpose of having RAID1 is as backup, as I
    said earlier, it's a very poor approach to backup.

    In fact, my view is that RAID1 is almost never a good thing for a home
    user to do.

    This does not seem to be a regback issue, at least on HP systems. It'
    also happening on XP. Alot of users are reporting problems
