  2. Okay thanks I'll test the drives in our test environment. Hopefully storport will pass the test's Cheers! commy
  3. Hi! Thanks for your reply! Yes the storport driver from Areca is beta. But anyway someone know why? What Do you mean with "bsods" ? Someone other got any idea about this driver problem? THANKS! commy
  4. Heyho! I have a decision problem with the driver for our Windows 2003 x64 Server Enterprise Edition. Areca offers two drivers for that system. SCSIPORT and STORPORT(beta) Areca recommends the SCSIPORT driver and Microsoft writes following in their STORPORT documentation: So I want to choose the STORPORT driver because its faster? I don't know why Areca recommends SCSI and Microsoft the STOR driver. Anyone has an idea for me? THANKS! Cheers, commy

    Three questions...

    Hmmm... I have this from my Raid Controller manufacturer: The 32-bit versions operating systems have a maximum limitation of 2 TB per volume set. 64-bit versions remove this limitation, so if you are building large warehouses, you should consider 64-bit versions. (This is from the manual of the RAID Card!) Regards

    Three questions...

    I have one last question ) it would be great if someone could help me =) 32-Bit systems have a limitation of 2 TB per Volume but I heard that 64-Bit operating systems have no limitation, is this correct? Thanks!!
  7. Thats not easy, because I'am planning too to buy three of these monsters. Can't decide because with Hitachi you must set the standard settings to SATA II if you want to using this mode... anyone know if this is correct? Thanks
