We have three Seagate drives in a Windows software RAID stripe arrangement. The server began to freeze up. I was running two backups simultaneously with Acronis and BackupChain and thought I overloaded the system, but wasn't the first time; it ran fine like that earlier. But then everything got stuck including the mouse so we panicked.
A colleague recommended to check the disks so we ran a chkdsk /b over night. It says it fixed a bunch of bad sectors but now I'm stuck because I don't know which drive is broken!
I then downloaded SeaTools for Windows and ran a generic test but it didn't find anything. Could it be the SeaTools check is now skipping those sectors because chkdsk already marked them? At the very least it would be great to know which drive was causing the freeze-up so we could potentially replace it. Naturally I need to figure out if files were damaged or lost, good luck to me!
