Identifying Windows disk to specific SATA array

Jump to solution

Hello,

 

I have two mirrors (Raid 1) arrays as data storage in a PC and the Irst identifies the arrays as:

SATA_ARRAY_0000 and SATA_ARRAY_0001, with, presumably default, volume names of:

Volume1 and Volume2.

How do I determine which of the disks in Windows (D: and E:) belong to which array?

 

Thank you,

Dan

Hello DanC


Thank you for your response.

After checking this further, we would like to inform you that the specific type of information you are trying to see and identify is not visible from Windows® neither from the BIOS since this is a Software-Hardware RAID controller. In other scenarios, this could be possible for instance, with an external RAID adapter.


We hope this clarifies your inquiry.


Best regards,

Right-click on the Windows Start button and select Disk Management.

For information on what is in the arrays themselves, run the GUI on older versions of Intel RST or run the new Intel Optane Memory and Storage App (download ed from the Microsoft App Store.

Disk Management doesn't appear to have the correlation between the two arrays. In Windows, the disks are identified as:

Bus Number 1, Target Id 1, LUN 0

and

Bus Number 3, Target Id 1, LUN 0

Irst only identifies the arrays as posted previously and lists the 4 drives as Port 1-4. How can I tell which array is on which Bus?

Thanks,

Dan

The RST GUI should tell you this when you click on a drive and display its information.

I appreciate the help, but this version apparently does not (12.5).

Is there a way outside of RST where I can get that information? The only other way I can think of is to pull a drive, see what is on it, see which raid becomes degraded and then I can change the volume names in RST so I'll know going forward.

Regards,
Dan

Hello Andrew,

I actually never did get a method that would identify which array = which disk in Windows. I believe that the version of Irst (12.5) may not provide that linkage. If this is the case, then I'll have to find another way.

Thanks!
