Just booted up my M2N-E system and strange red blinking message in
RAID initialization popped up.

2 WD 250 GB SATA drives in Raid-1 array is Drive C:
2 Maxtor 320 GB drives in Raid-1 array as Drive D:
1 WD Raptor 85 Gb drive standalone as E:.

WHen I booted up, I got the C drive OK and what appeared to be the D
drive, and the E drive, but a new Drive G: popped up I had never seen

I did so, but nothing. I then looked at the details of the other
degraded array (G - same thing- tried R - rebuild, but nothing.

it and proceeded to backup the D; drive, since it presumablu had more
data than G:.

I now have a backup of the drive, but have done nothing since If you
don't know anything about it, leave it alone until you do. I have
refrained from writing on either drive to try to maintain status quo
until I know how to proceed.

I would like to know of anyone who experienced this and what you did
about it, or can someone direct me to a place where I can find a

Thanks for any and all replies.
