Hope this is in the correct forum
I am not sure if the Specs from my profile are veiwable, so I'll repost several here for reference.
Home Build - Nothing overclocked
XP 32Bit SP3
Asus P5N32-E SLI
Intel Core2Duo E6700 2667MHZ
4GB DDR2 6400 Ballistic
2 - XFX GeForce 8600 GT -w- 256MB in SLI
Antec - 850W TruPower Quattro
5 Seagate SATAs in - (465GB RAID5) OS - (300GB Mirror) Digital Photos from 1999 & backup files
My problem lies with the 300GB Mirror.
I noticed last week my system hanging, lagging, unresponsive
(As in would lock up, and had to hit the power button to shutdown)
Ran some diagnostics - then noticed that my MIRROR had 'degraded'.
Moved my Pagefile from the MIRROR to the RAID5,
(by zeroing it, rebooting, then adding it to the RAID5)
Checked the drives for stability (all ok)
Copied all my irreplacable files to my RAID5 (left other files there) , rebootd,
Went into the BIOS & set the MIRROR to rebuild, rebooted,
logged on & saw the MIRROR rebuilding....
It hangs at 73%.......for hours (12+)
I have tried this several times, in several ways - in safe mode, as Admin, as User, logging in, not loggon in.
Other than copying the rest of the files to my RAID5,
going into the BIOS and deleting the drives from the MIRROR, rebooting , and redoing the MIRROR (including format)
I am at a loss.
Thanks in advance
