I'm having trouble with my RAID0 array (2x250GB SATA1), I think one of the drives hay be bad/corrupted* but my system freezes when the array is enabled. I'm thinking about disabling my raid adapter and running chkdsk, ect on the individual drives. Since I've never tried this before I'm worried about the effect the error correction would have on the striped data. Would there be any risk repairing individual drives and then re-engaging the array?
*My system stopped working a few days ago, it bluescreens on vista boot (I deleted my XP installation a couple weeks ago to make space until I can get some more hard drives) and when I try to use the install disk to repair the system it hangs at the end of the first progress bar "loading files". I used a MiniPE disk to boot to the system and it seems to work normally unless I load the raid driver to access my disk, then it freezes randomly after a few minutes.
