HP Desktop PC 4 sites.  Installed 2 SSD drives in RAID 1 Win 10 to upgrade hard drives. After about a year of use, the pc's shut down and would not boot, RST shows both SSD drives FAILED and VOL 0  FAILED, not bootable. I am able to connect either of the drives to a USB adaptor and boot from them with the USB drive as the first bootable device. They operate normally but very slowly with the USB connection. All data and programs files are intact. This has happened at 4 locations out of about 50 installations. SanDisk 1 TB SSD Plus, Intel Option Rom 12.5.0.1815 on HP RP5810  Desktop PC. We have a few hundred sites with spinning drives that have had few problems, we have had to replace a few individual drives but were able to rebuild them through the RST program in Windows. The SanDisk utility shows no errors on the drives.

IAStorUI.exe Ver 14.8.0.1042 dated 11/4/2015

I believe this was downloaded from the Intel Site.

We only upgraded some of the HP RP5800 models.

Not have not been notified of any error codes.

These pc's are used as back office file servers in Point of Sale applications in mainly Restaurants and Bars.

They are powered on 24 hr. a day. Over the past 2 years or so we had upgraded about 50 of these pc's with 2 SanDisk Pro 1Tb drives that were imaged at our office, installed at the customers site and we transferred their site specific files to the new drives. They were working fine until a few months ago when this started happening. We are replacing the failed SSD's with a pair of WD Blue Hard Drives that we have pre imaged at our office and can usually have them operating within 2 hours of our arrival at their site. The BIOS Raid Configuration shows that both drives are Failed in Red and the VOL 0 Failed in Red, not bootable.
