I needed to move from Raid 1 to Raid 5.  So I buy a new disk like the 2 others, connect it to SATA  and I delete the volume Raid 1,  but when I try to do the Raid 5, the new disk is unavailable because it is Lock.  It's a brand new disk just 2 months older than the 2 others.

I show here the description of 1 normal disk and of the Lock one.  I bold what is not the same info on the 2 disks.

The lock disk is not used by Windows 11 (21H2) as we can see in disk manager.

I unformat the disk with Diskpart (clean) just to be sure the disk is clean but the Lock still there.  I have an other Raid 5 in the system made with 3 old disk and I have no problem to do it.  I have the same problem event if I try to do the Raid 5 in the BIOS.

 

I hope, if I need tom replace a defect disk in a RAID in the future, it will not be so complex...

 

The version of Intel raid is:

I don't know where is the problem ?  Help, please.  Thanks.

Hello bretonv, I just received an update on this matter.

 

The following are the steps to unlock a disk, if a disk is locked there is no way to build a volume.

 

  • Under "Status’ or ‘Manage", in the storage system view, click the disk you want to unlock. The disk properties are now displayed on the left.
  • Click "Unlock".
  • Enter the password, and then click "Unlock".

 

Regards,

Hello bretonv, Since we have not heard back from you, we are closing the case, but if you have any additional questions, please post them on a new thread so we can further assist you with this matter.


As an option, you can also get in contact directly with the manufacturer of the disk to verify if they have a tool to monitor the health of the device:
