Intel Rapid Storage Technology & Raid1 array

#1
Hi,
I put two HDDs on GA P55A-UD4P motherboard in Raid1 type array (on Intel SATA Controller) and they were working fine for quite some time (2 weeks or so).
One day, after Windows started up, I noticed a blue icon on Intel RST manager and it says that the array is initializing. What does it mean? Will it delete the data that is stored in there already ? As far as I know, initialization is needed in Raid5 type arrays, where parity needs to be calculated. Raid1 is a pure mirror so what would be the need for initialization right now with data in the array already ? Any hints would be helpful. I am really worried since it was supposed to be the safe data storage solution ...
Thank you

Marek

[lang=es]Nada es seguro en esta vida. Y menos si hablamos de informacion.

Hay que tener presente que cualquier dispositivo de almacenamiento de datos puede llegar a fallar en algun momento. Y los RAID no son la excepcion.

Un RAID 1 puede aumentar las posibilidades de estar mas seguro pero nunca un 100% de seguridad.

Lo mas seguro es: mantener un respaldo de los datos en un medio externo.

Ahora, si llegara a fallar y hubiera perdida de datos, la solucion ideal es la de contratar los servicios de una empresa especializada en recuperaciones. Algunas de las mejores: ONRETRIEVAL, ONTRACK, ONRESCUE,...
