[Solved] Check RAID config at Windows
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?
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.
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.
