I had 2 WD2500JS drives in a Raid 1 Mirror configuration One of the drives failed (WD2500JS-22N). I purchased a new drive, but it is showing as 232.8GB when I boot the system up in a Intel Matrix Storage Manager Window prior to windows starting, and the good existing drive shows 232.9GB, and I can’t rebuild the Raid array. The new drive appears smaller by 0.1GB.
I’ve tried using a DOS boot tool to “Set Capacity to MAX” on the new drive, but it still doesn’t work.
The original drive that still works is a WD2500JS-00SGB0 Firmware 20.06C03
The drive I just purchased is a WD2500JS-75NCB3 Firmware 10.02E04
After Windows starts and I run the Intel Matrix Storage Console application, it shows both drives as 232.8GB. Both show a sector size of 512Bytes.
When I try to “Rebuild to this Hard Drive” by right clicking on the newly installed drive II get the following error:
Rebuild RAID Volume Wizard
The Volume cannot be rebuilt to the selected hard drive due to one of the following reasons:
-The hard drive contains system files or is the system hard drive
-The hard drive is not large enough to be used for the rebuild action
-The hard drive has reported a SMART event
-The hard drive has reported a failure
-The hard drive is in a different encryption state than the volume.
