Hi there, this is my first post but I've lurked here before and I think this site is great. That said I have a problem and I'm not sure how to troubleshoot is.



- ML10v2 b120i software RAID used with:

- Array A 1 Logical drive in RAID 0 - this is one SSD, Samsung 850

- Array B 1 Logical drive in RAID 1+0 - this is a set of 4 WD Reds

- Runs Windows 10 professional as a Steam in-home streaming server and 'Nas'

- Arrays are detected as two "HP LOGICAL VOLUME SCSI Disk device" by Windows


This system ran fine for a couple of months but since a month it has been causing problems:

- Windows slows down to a crawl and becomes unresponsive

- SDD usage is 100% 

- Seems to happen randomly


I checked:

- chkdsk on the drive, everything fine

- Windows event logs don't mention anything regarding defective drives, neither does disk management

- Disk usage is 100% although there is no process causing this and nothing is being written or read according to Windows

- ILO will sometimes say "Internal Storage Enclosure Device Failure (Bay 5, Box 0, Port 5I, Slot 0)" (this is the SSD)

- ILO will sometimes say this Logical drive has failed, so not the physical drive

- Ran HP SSA offline and ran diagnostics. Nothing. Currently it says everything is fine


I just can't pinpoint the location of the failure, does anybody have an idea what's going on here?

Have you looked in the Task Manager to see what process is consuming all of the activity?

Yep, this is listed in the original post, according to Windows there isn't a process that causes this. After posting this I decided to look at this from a hardware perspective and I switched the SATA cable. The system has been up and running ever since with no disk related problems.
