Personally I did not check under Win x64, but checked all possible versions under Win7x64, Win8x64 and Win10x64 I checked the driver from both 5. I’m trying to reproduce, examine with more details on similar configuration, similar controller and OS version, because this controller previously tested with other OSes, not Win R2 x64 you use. I’ll provide any news and updated versions for testing as soon as possible. Previously you did not send developer report. Redundant RAID 5 and 6 protection shields storage configurations from 1 or 2 disk failures without compromising data accessibility. And the status of the Seagate hard disk is not detected in both Hard Disk Sentinel and in the Via tool. The RocketStor TS has integrated a series of preemptive security measures to maximize Storage uptime whenever data is needed.
With older drivers, yes, exactly as raie can see, only partial and sometimes even incorrect status may be detected. Even you suggested that is better to use Vista driver, I’ve considered that w2k3 driver, being designed for server version, it has more chances to work than vista, so I’ve started direct with it. Could be the one used for 64 bit OS vista, win7 or But as you can see, the driver does not report the status – even to the VIA tool. I did not give up too, but I was to busy today to focus in this direction.
As I already said, as time exist a driver “claimed” to work for w2k bit version, we should give it a try. It is just the truth, HDS does not rald. That’s the reason I post in a forum and did not contacted on private.
Personally I did not check under Win x64, but checked all possible versions under Win7x64, Win8x64 and Win10x64 I checked the driver from both 5. I just did not allow posts of an user who was unfair.
This is exactly why I asked a developer report – which designed exactly to verify the detectuibs, check possible errors reported by the contoller, generally investigate what can be wrong and how things can be still improved.
It has been required to run in console hdsentinel.
VIA V-RAID Driver 6.10A
You can check this page: But with 64 bit OS, when the 64 bit drivers installed, the driver provides complete status only of one device.
I am also have configured and working in Raid Bios, 2 disks in one raid 1 array.
I did 621 testing and can confirm that things work with 32 bit Windows and drivers: It seems on your system the controller works differently than on others tested previously, that’s why only one hard disk detected from the configuration. Previously on older systems XP, Vista with the recommended 5.
The same, only one disk. Strange is that according to their website: We are following up internally and will let you know the next step. I do not really think I’m still investigating the possibilities and do the best, but not sure if we can have a solution without the driver update – which will never happen, according the official response about the end-of-life status of this controller.
Hopefully both hard disks will appear with their complete status. Taiwan [end snip] So this controller will not work correctly on w2k8r bit.
I hope there will be an updated version available, if so, it will be surely added to the Driver Zone page. With Windows Device Manager, it is possible to manually install the driver if we locate the controller and select the manual installation from a specific folder. But I can confirm that this driver also works similarly: And last but not least, I want to address many thanks for hdsentinel for his dedication and his work.

If things do not work as expected, it can and should be corrected of course. You posted here a simple HTML user report, which is excellent for the user as it contains all details of the hard disks. Please send an image – as maybe your VIA tool works differently and may display something even partial information which can help. Your assumption is correct.
This way it is possible to check the actual situation: Users browsing this forum: This is true for other RAID controllers eg.
