Hey Guys,

is there any registry path or similar where I can see how the installed hard drives were configured?

Currently I have a Windows system with a RAID 1 configured as a software raid, but where is this information stored in Windows?

 

Thanks!

I think RAID-1 (mirror image of the disks) may be stored in the BIOS

Yes, but it's a software RAID its a HW-RAID but I don't have access to the server BIOS. And it is important that I can get this information about such configurations for future investigation without hardware!

If its a Windows Software RAID, the images should be dynamic disks which will contain the information about the RAID configuration.

Sorry its not a software-RAID via Windows its a BIOS-RAID in this case!

But same question, where can I find this information in the registry?

In which case, why would it be stored in the registry? If its being controlled by the BIOS or a hardware card, then the details wouldn't form part of the operating system. To the OS, it would just be a single drive and all the details would be handled at hardware level.

Hmm, somehow makes sense. Then I try to search for some installed RAID-Tools from the mainboard.

I don't know for sure, but think that CrystalDiskInfo ( https://crystalmark.info/en/) shows this information, among some other interesthing info like "Power On Count" and "Power on Hours", Firmware, serial number, interface, transfer mode, etc. I don't have a RAID anymore, so can not test it.
