Can I increase the size of my RAID 5 Intel RST with ASUS BIOS?

Jump to solution

One of my RAID 5 disks failed. I had 3 x SSDSC2BW240H6 and I need to replace one... or all 3. This specific SSD has been discontinued and I am trying to find alternatives, and possibly upgrade at the same time. I wanna stay with Intel.

a- will I be able to up grade the RAID 5 1 disk at a time, let it build, replace the next... and have access to the higher speeds of the new SSD's as well as the added space?

b- Could you recommend SSD that will be compatible with my current Intel RST set up?

Hello, melatwood. Thank you very much for taking the time to reach the Intel Communities Team.

 

 

Regarding your inquiry:

 

 

a) Indeed you can rebuild your RAID 5 one disk at the time with the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology. Once this is done you need to change the size of the partition on the Windows* Disk Management, please find the instructions to achieve so on the image attached to this post.

 

b) We do not recommend hardware. You can double check the compatibility of the hardware you would like to use with your mainboard manufacturer.

 

 

I hope this answers all your questions.
