Yes, basically ages ago I had a problem with windows 7 so had to create new partition for windows 7 and set up the raid 0 and I haven't been able to see or save any data into these ssd's I just haven't got round to getting it sorted out until now and this just reminded me.

Processor - Intel Core i7 - 2600k CPU @ 3.40 GHz

RAM - 16GB

64-bit Windows 7

Graphics Card - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590

If you want i can attach my dxDiag thing?

And tbh i cannot remember it was over a year ago since i got it and can't remember. If there is some way to find out then that would be good.

I have read through this thread and I am still lost as to what the issue actually is..

So to make it clear for you so maybe you can better explain the issue if there is one we can better help you.

First the Health Information being reported by Crystal Disk tools is not reliable as explained in the link that was provided to you by YellowBeard.

So that information is not to be trusted.

Second I would suggest you break the RAID array and update the firmware on the drives to the latest which is 5.3 and you may want to use Parted Magic and secure erase the drives and start over. You can run ATTO on the drive to test their performance but if you do have a problem with the drive they will, not complete the firmware update or be able to erase them with parted Magic.

Basically, my SSD's are not being recognized at all on the computer, so i do not have 3 sotrage drives instead i only have 1 which is my HDD. When i enter the configuration (to set up Raid's etc) the 2 SSD's are there and i can see that they are recognized by the computer. But when the computer is fully booted up, so say i go into my computer i only have my HDD there. It is the same in device manager, they do not appear. IT's like my pc is ignoring that they are there

Looking at your inital issue ...

 

Crystaldiskinfo is for some reason reading the thresholds all wrong, which is causing it to think several of the parameters have broken their thresholds. Therefore, it says the drive is bad (when it isn't, because the reported values are all very much normal)

 

I've seem some versions of RST cause programs to report the wrong SMART details, so it is a good place to start. The latest RST(11.7) should allow crystaldiskinfo to correctly read the smart parameters (works here)

If you still can't access your RAID array, you will need to break it apart, secure erase the drives, and re-create it ... good luck :)

Since its Raid0 do you think i should clear the data on it as well? Or will just breaking up the Raid array be enough?
