Temp not reported in WIN8.1 for Storage Spaces drives

Recommended Posts

Well here's a weird one. I have two 3TB seagates and applied windows storage spaces to them.

They mirrored fine, seemed like a simpler solution than raid.

Then i did a system re-install and windows seemed to re-mount the drives automatically without any trouble.

The only thing that changed was the sensor panel no longer showed temp info for those two physical drives.

 

After Storage Spaces and before System Re-install...

After Re-install with Storage Spaces functioning...

The thin green line is utilization for Drive E which i think must be the Storage Spaces drive.

In Sensor Panel, Modify Item, Utilization the list shows drives C,D,E, and H which would be optical.

 

But the Temp readings have gone...

Only my C drive Samsung and my D drive W.D. show in Temp.

 

In AIDA64 Physical Drives they show...

Drive 3 & 4, the two physical drives show as does the storage space applied to them Drive 5.

 

Here are my system specs...

 

CPU - Intel Core i5-4440 3.1GHz Quad-Core (viciously O.C. to 3.3GHz)
Motherboard - Asus Z87-A ATX LGA1150
Memory - Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866
Storage - Samsung 840 Pro Series 256GB 2.5" SSD
              - Western Digital BLACK SERIES 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM
             - Seagate Barracuda 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM ST3000DM001
              - Seagate Barracuda 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM ST3000DM001
Video Card - Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB
                    -GIGABYTE GV-R777OC-1GD
Power Supply - Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 550W ATX12V (My systems max power draw is 261W)
Optical Drive - Pioneer BDR-209DBK Blu-Ray/DVD/CD Writer
OS - Microsoft Windows 8.1 (OEM) (64-bit)

 

This Noob thanks you for any help.

1) Do you use the same AIDA64 version and the same SATA/RAID controller driver now and before?

2) Do you use the same AIDA64 settings (AIDA64.INI) now and before?

3) Are you intentionally running an old AIDA64 version? ;)

Hello Fiery

Thank you for your reply.

1- Same, just did a system reinstall. Same sata/raid drivers.

2- i have never directly edited that file but my preferences settings in AIDA were the same.

3- <engage sense of humor 1.2> don't quit yer day job. ;-)

    as i am still using 8.1, which is what my current version of AIDA was written for, i see no need to upgrade .

    i imagine i will eventually move to win10 (for DX12)but i will still try to flog my current version of

    AIDA  as my money tree was plowed down when they built the new wall-mart next door.

    but i promise that as soon as i get that leprechaun i have tied up in the basement to tell me where his pot of gold is i will certainly upgrade.

i still give AIDA64 10/10 and recommend it to all my OCD control freak friends.

Please try to enable the two RAID related options in AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Stability, and restart AIDA64. If it doesn't help, then please right-click on the bottom status bar of AIDA64 main window --> Disk Debug --> ATA Dump. Copy-paste the full results into this topic.

Then right-click on the bottom status bar of AIDA64 main window --> Disk Debug --> SMART Dump. Copy-paste the full results into this topic.

Also right-click on the bottom status bar of AIDA64 main window --> Disk Debug --> RAID Dump. Copy-paste the full results into this topic.

Thanks,

Fiery

went to Device Manager and the two seagate 3gb drives are listed under Disk Drives but when i open the properties and go to volumes tab and hit Populate an error appears "Volume information for this disk cannot be found".

also under Disk Drives is listed the Microsoft Storage Space Device. under the Properties / Volumes for that it does populate.

seems as if windows is hiding the physical drives for the Storage Spaces.

Thank you for the data. Do you have Intel RST driver installed? If not, then please install it, because that should help AIDA64 to enumerate member drives of soft or hard RAID arrays connected to Intel SATA controllers.

Oh my hopes soared so high upon the reading of your suggestion.

I installed this file...

Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) RAID Driver,   f6flpy-x64.zip

Reboot and nothing changed. I don't know if it even matters but the Volume would still not populate in  Device Manager / Disk Drives.

Thank you for your continued efforts.

 

P.S. Finally got that leprechaun to talk and upgraded to AIDA64 v5.5!

If that didn't help, then I'm afraid we ran out of ideas :( The problem is that somehow either Windows or RST hides the drives from our RAID enumeration calls, so AIDA64 simply cannot detect the individual drives. Unless RST can provide information for RAID member drives via the regular RAID calls, we're simply stuck.
