I am using the onboard RAID controller to create my disk array, 4 disk with RAID5. The driver version is 3.1.1540.25 and I don't know the version of firmware. Everything is well until I got some LBA errors when reading a file. The controller says the problem was fixed and the record was cleared soon, but I found that the file was corrupted, with some parts of the data was changed to unknown in units of one sector. I removed the disk, put a new disk then rebuild it, but nothing changed. Can someone tell me, Is that a bug? Why a RAID5 controller can easily kill the data without any notification, even when I just have one disk broken?

Welcome to the Forum, Justod.

I see your Thread has been read quite a few times with no response. I haven't play with Raid all that much, but I did notice a few up-dates for my MoBo (FX 790), which leads me to believe that there are/where known issues with this Chipset/BIOS using Raid set-ups. You may want to go to your MoBo makers site and check for up-dated Utilities, and sift through their Forums to see if others have had the same problem and see what kind of fixes they have for your board.

for example here are the up-dates for my MoBo


BIOS history:

Support setting SATA-5 and SATA-6 to IDE mode when SATA 1-4 is set to AHCI or RAID mode.

Fix the issue that system may be unable to build RAID 0 or RAID 1 with certain Kingston SSD.

Don't know if this helps, but it might be a place to start, if you haven't already done so.
