I have a RAID System that uses 4 HDD to store network client project files. Recently, it has been noted that project files are being opened the next day or next couple of days and once the material in the file is examined it is being discovered that the last file save was not retained.

What I mean is, it seems as though the raid system is either ignoring the updated "save-over" operation while the files are open, in use, and being actively updated OR the actively used file(S) are being replaced with older versions from the mirrored raid system once the user closes and finishes work on any particular file.

I am curious if anyone knows anything about this sort of issue and has advice on how to correct it. There have been no problems from this RAID system for over 5 years and nothing has been changed/updated to lead me to believe that something recent has caused this "effect".

The RAID Device is a 3ware Escalade 7000/8000 Series ATA RAID.

I appreciate your help.
