Adaptec RAID 4805SAS issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a home server setup with a primary OS drive 320 SATA off the main board of a Lenovo A60 Workstation which I have added an Adaptec 4805SAS 8 port RAID card and 6 1TB Samsung drives. I added all 6 to the server storage and copied 4.5 TB of data on them been running for a week, shut it down last night as had guest staying and the external case housing the drives is rather noisey. Started it up this morning hardware is all fine but the Adaptec driver will no longer load. have tried updating the driver to no avail. have checked cables and re-seated the card no change. The Adaptec on board hardware utility at boot reports all drives present and fine.

    Any ideas would be appriecated as I have a lot of data at risk here

    Cheers

  • I'm going to have to suggest you contact Adaptec. It sounds to me like a problem with their drivers, and we can't solve that for you.

    If Adaptec can't help, your data shouldn't be at risk, though. If your individual disks are directly exposed, there's no problem getting at the data on them.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
