S.M.A.R.T. monitoring, Ghost for nvRAID?

Recommended Posts

I've got four Hitachi 7K80 drives in a RAID stripe... does anyone know a way to monitor these with a S.M.A.R.T. tool? All the tools I've tried only show my extra regular IDE disk.

 

I also can't seem to Ghost it no matter what I try with Ghost 8.0. I tried the -FFI and -FFX switches in various combinations and nothing can recognize it. I did Ghost it once a while back but don't remember which version or switches I used. It might have worked when I had only 2 drives, perhaps adding the extra 2 made it more difficult, but I doubt it.

 

Perhaps another tool like Acronis TrueImage would work? Anyone had luck with this?

S.M.A.R.T. doesn't work with SATA RAID. I don't think you would have any problem creating an image with True Image.

You need dos drivers for your sata raid card for ghost to see the array properly or one of the supported raid cards (mostly scsi) that ghost naitively supports (this assumes your using the dos version of ghost)
