Sil Array Manager Problems

Hi

I'm using Silicon's Array Manager (Sil Arrary Manager or SAM) - sil3114. I've got a 4 drive RAID 5 setup, which I've been using for some time. I've had intermittent problems (the drives not always showing up) and realised a new driver has been released, so I upgraded.

Now when I enter SAM, it shows no RAID group under my controller, but shows my four devices, each with "Legacy RG 0; 279.64 Gb; Parity RAID".

Question is: how can I re-create the RAID group so I can access my drives. I really need the data on them - it's important!!

Any help would be great.

Thanks

Martin

well the new is that the firmware (driver) changed enough that it changed the information for your hard drives. You might be able to go back to the previous version to get access to your data. However, chances are that you will need to reblank and setup your raid.

start by going into computer managment, and go to disk management and see if the devices show up there.

as this isn't application related I will move this over to the hw forum so it can have more visability.
