I have twoST318404LW's (Cheetah 18.4 Ultra 160) in a burly enclosure connected to my G4 466 running 9.1 via an ATTO Express PCI Ultra3 Dual-channel that has been set up as RAID 1 with Soft RAID 2.2.2. It has served me well for about 7 months but I noted a message from Soft RAID that the top drive "failed". I deleted the RAID, did a low level formatting of the "failed" drive using SoftRAID, rebuilt the RAID1 with both drives and immediately recieved the same message from SoftRAID. Any suggestions. TIA DJK

Doug,

I went here http://www.softraid.com/troubleshooting.lasso and nothing stuck out for me but maybe you will see something. Or maybe one of their other pages. Anyway, perhaps an email to their tech support with a descroption of the problem. I've never seen any warning message from SoftRAID. Have you updated the ATTO card to the latest firmware? k
