Over a year ago, I bought two Seagate 1.5 TB SATA hard drives, and set them up in Raid 1 (mirroring), so as to have a (slightly) more secure data storage system. Two days ago, I turned on my computer, and the raid status (Intel raid) had changed to Rebuild. This had happened a couple of times before, so I thought nothing of it. When it booted to windows, a windows driver install window came up, notifying me that there was a driver needed to be installed called "Duplicate" or something like that (could have been Rebuild, or something else along those lines). This was a bit more odd in my experience. I still thought nothing of it however. It installed the driver, and told me that windows needed to restart in order for the changes to take effect, or something along those lines. Being in rather a hurry, I told it to cancel (or wait, or something like that), and continued using the computer as normal for the rest of the day. Come nightfall, I turned off the computer. The next morning, I turned on the computer, and the raid status screen had changed. On one of the drives, the message "An error has occurred" had appeared. The overall raid status was still on Rebuild. Since then, I have used SeaTools and SpinRite to individually verify both drives (without raid turned on) were in operational condition, and without errors. I tried booting from the boot drive in the raid configuration (which was not the one with the error), and it worked fine (the driver window still showed up though). I couldn't see the other drive though (I had turned off raid at this point). I have tried changing ports, though not cables. Where should I go from here? Thanks in advance.
