I just got a SMART message from one of my hard drives. No apparent issues, but this worries me because I am using RAID0, so the loss of a drive is an enormous pain in the :censored:.
Any idea what this means, what can be done, etc.?
Hard drive is no longer performing properly = probably dying. Time to do a backup and RMA it. Sorry.
check your hard drive temps, last time i had a smart error it was because the fan that was cooling them piled up. unfortunatly the damage was permanant so i always got that error and ended up ditching the drives.
They are new drives, though, so I guess if they fail at all they probably fail now. I just registered them for warranty, so thats not a problem.
One other thing. I'm using Vista OEM (which the license informs me in more than three places is highly illegal). Will there be any difficulty re-installing it on the new drive?
