I get a wierd error whenever I try defragging my RAID drive... There two 30g WD ata100 drives on a modified Promise ultra100 card...



I've done everything from booting into the console to using NTFSdos Pro to try and find any file named "extend"...

help... :( ...

Thanks... That helps...

I don't suppose there's anyway to change the cluster size without redoing the array?!?

I have 34gig of trash I'd hate to try and back up...
I'll probably just get Speeddisk...

One more question... If I redo the array whats the best cluster size from a performace (stripping) stand point?!?

Just went into the bios, it's a Promise Fastrak100, There no option for clustersize...

If I set up the array manualy it only gives 64k...

Under automatic setup it has only "performance" then "server", "desktop" and "A/V Editing"...

I'll have to dl the manual to see what all that means...

As a side note I destoyed then recreated the partion and it still has all the files... :confused: ?!?

I converted my Ultra100 to a Fastrak100 awhile ago dl'd the manual and never read it... I reall must start reading instructions, there's so much good stuff in them... I think I can get it...

Somhow I missed you post... Ijust got everything set and it did erase the files after I changed the size...

The default size of the Promise card is 64k... I manualy defined the array for the max of 1024, then fromated to the same cluster size, as you instructed Ziptrix(?)...

That must've been the reson I kept getting corrupt files... The cluster size in the bios of 64k and the formated cluster size was 4096...


Thanks for all your help on this... Learned something new... Again...

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
