:D Hi
Have 4 32gig bix GX25 drives on Raid0 on areca 1210 pciex8 on ud7 Gigabyte mb with wint x64 i7 980x nvidia 480x2 sli at 4.5ghz. is this trimming itself with TRIM in win7?. Altho you use the same basic card with the chips on it for raiddrive, all your utilities cannot see the drives 1571 firmware. i actually used the Raiddrive driver from your website to install the storport x64 driver for my system, works fine. 900 + mb.sec read and write and 149mb/sec for 4k. updated to newer storport driver from areca website and have latest firmware installed. still wont see the drives with any supertalent utilities.

Raid Set IDE Channels Volume Set(Ch/Id/Lun) Volume State Capacity
Raid Set # 00 ARC-1210-VOL#00 (0/0/0) Normal 128.1GB

IDE Channels
Channel Usage Capacity Model
Ch01 Raid Set # 00 32.0GB STT_FTM32GX25H
Ch02 Raid Set # 00 32.0GB STT_FTM32GX25H
Ch03 Raid Set # 00 32.0GB STT_FTM32GX25H
Ch04 Raid Set # 00 32.0GB STT_FTM32GX25H
if not trimming itself, please write patch or exe to clean garbage thank you sir

If you are using any RAID card, the utility tool here will not work.
The utility will work on only at SATA direct connection.
Thanks,

I'm posting my question here as it is SMART related.

The announcement of firmware 2142 states:
SSD-James wrote:The old firmware 2030 has some serious problem at flushing so that it wears out your SSD very quickly.
I wondered how I should understand the values of the SMART attributes in this respect. Do they reflect this increased wear? More specifically attribute 209: can I still rely on its value to monitor expected remaining lifetime?

Remaining life time is associated with the firmware wear leveling.

i updated firmware from 15xx to 2124.

ID209 says remaining lifetime 100%.

has this value been reset during firmware-update?

other smart-tools recommend disk replacement:

"Your hard disk is a STT_FTM28GX25H with firmware 2142.
Your hard disk is not reporting its temperature.
This is normal for this hard disk model.

Attribute Current Raw

Unknown attribute 213 0 000000000000

All the attributes of your hard disk are above the S.M.A.R.T. thresholds set by the manufacturer. This is good.

BLOCKING ISSUE : your hard disk has 634 offline uncorrectable sectors (this value is very large and your hard disk should be replaced). Those are sectors that an offline scanning found as unreadable. Offline scanning is a process that can be automatically started by the hard disk logic when a long enough idle period is detected or that can be forced by some tool. Those unreadable sectors are identified and the hard disk logic is waiting for a write command that will overwrite them to try to remap them to spare sectors (if available). A simple disk surface scan won't be enough to force the remap operation. You need a read/write surface scan to remap the sector. The best option should be a tool that knows about what should be read from that sector so that it has some option to apply the best fix to the missing data.

The overall fitness for this drive is 0%.
The overall performance for this drive is 100%. "

is it still safe to use the drive?

MP TOOL will Reset to 0
Temp data is constant 0
So, everything looks OK now.
But SMART data you mentioned is from OTHER TOOL. It does not mean anything.
Please use the above tool to see the SMART data.
Thanks,
James

It looks OK to me.
If you can tell me the story, I may have better recommendations for you.
I need information like:
- When did you buy?
- What OS did you install at what PC?
- How long did you use?
- When did you update the firmware?
- How long did you use?
- When did you update the firmware? (if multiple, tell me)
- ??? Your usage pattern...
