OK I am new to WHS 2011 and drive pool but I have a question that I can't seem to find the answer to. I put together a whs box and implemented a windows driven raid 5 array of 4 Samsung spinpoint disks. Until a week ago everything was fine until the array had failed redundancy and then upon me trying to fix it going all coocoo. Long story short I lost all my data. The disks are fine apparently there's rare occurrences with foreign disks in windows with certain raid controllers. So anyways I am now using drive pool and I paid for it but I want to add 4 more disks bringing my total to 8. I was looking at the highpoint 2720SGL and noticed there's a raid version and a non raid version. Is there a hardware diffrenece or can I buy the raid version and use JBOD. If I do use jbod when I plug mydisks with existing data will I loose it? Is anyone using this controller and if so does it work really well. Thanks.
