    No, I haven't read up on Storage Spaces as I haven't been interested on it other than to understand what it does, but as a long-time software developer it looks only natural to me. Storage Spaces can use any available disk. Those disks are provided by some hardware controller, and the only way Windows knows about them and how to use them is through the drivers provided by the controller manufacturer. It's the nature of the beast. The drivers provide the building blocks Storage Spaces can use.

    The fact it can mix and match disparate types of disks make it very flexible and expandable, but also adds to the inherent complexity of the code and thus not as responsive as functionality inherent inside a driver would be. It's the intended trade-off and a very valid one for certain enterprise-level solutions. It's certainly a clever technology.

    When you say the drive goes into long internal recovery, what exactly are you referring to? Also remember the disk driver should provide S.M.A.R.T. information which can be used by the higher-level software.

    And thanks for being so understanding. I'm still getting over such a dumb slip - they seem to be happening more often, like putting the sugar bowl in the microwave instead of the cup with milk (for a lazy latte) .
    I am a long time software developer as well, including data acquisition and storage, and that don't look natural to me. Now I manage Storage developers and administrators. LOL.

    Ok i solved my problem with RST software giving me BSOD's. Apparently the Marvel/Jmicron controller created a conflict with the RST software itself not the driver. one of my BSOD's pointed towards Jraid.sys.

    To fix this
    1. Uninstall RST software in programs and features
    2. Go to programs and features remove marvell/jmicron software, restart pc.
    3. Download latest JMicron controller for X58 chipset here ftp://driver.jmicron.com.tw/SATA_Con...17.65_WHQL.zip
    4.Install JMicron controller, Install RST software restart and enjoy full functionality without error

    Side note i noticed the RST software changes the way the drives access data and I am not talking about write back cache. After a day or two of the software package running and raid verification the benchmarks improved to a point where it surpassed previous benchmarks without the RST software package installed by a significant amount

    Also Windows storage controller is crap. lol at least for the x58.
    A lot of people have said JMicron controllers were crap. I used JMicron for eSATA for a long time and it performed well and worked flawlessly.

    RST has much better performance than native windows SATA drivers even for non-raid.

    Agreed although really i have never tested jmicron drivers not offered by my Manufacturer Asus. From my understanding the JMicron controller on the x58 chipset performs best under AHCI as a single drive and not Raid because it fails to pass trim commands and honestly its older drivers were complete crap, if you look at the changelog the errors they corrected were pretty ridiculous problems that should never have been released in the first place. I just have my DVD player plugged into it.

    Hello all, I just registered here to report the same problem on a Dell 7348 laptop with i5-5200U, a single SSD and standard intel/Microsoft drivers.

    The symptoms are the same: the computer freezes for a moment while Disk I/O errors out as shown on the event log. The SSD is brand new and it took me a while to find anything about this problem on-line as it seems not many people are having it. To anyone reading: You're not alone!

    I also pin-pointed this to either the SATA drivers and/or a conflict with the graphic card drivers (the toolbar flashes a 1px white line now and then) and I haven't found any driver combination that works. I don't have RAID and RST won't work either.

    Going back to Windows 8.1 solves the problem (the SSD is in perfect conditions, of course).

    This is a major let down and I'm amazed this problem is deemed obscure. I hope Intel gets its act together soon and fixes this.

    I guess natural is a relative term :). Now I'm retired, so have more time to deal with stuff like this. Fortunately my Win 10 experience has been fairly smooth so far.

    Fixed!

    I finally got this sorted out, here's what I did in case someone else can benefit from this:

    1. After upgrading from Windows 7/8/8.1 to Windows 10, make sure to download and install all possible updates from Microsoft.

    2. After no more Microsoft installs are found, go to the Device manager (right-click on start menu icon), then go to each and every device listed, right-click on it and update the drivers with the "Automatic" option. I found some devices (specially from Intel) find updated drivers not detected by Windows update.

    3. If this does not solve the problem, go to Intel download site, search for the latest "Rapid Storage Technology" RAID driver for Windows 10, then download the -ZIP- version suited for your Windows system and extract the contents to a folder on your PC.

    4. Go back to Device manager, and right-click on ATA/SATA controller device then update the drivers using the "Search" function, then browse to the folder with the extracted files and click on Next button to install them.

    5. Your computer will need to reboot, do it and you should no longer see the "reset \Device\RaidPort0" error on your event log.

    I wonder if the missing drivers undetected by Windows update have anything to do with the problem but I updated them anyway. You can also try the regular Intel RST installer and probably get the same result.

    Thanks fopr posting this, have a new fangled Win10 3 striped SSD


    Thanks for posting this one, and I thought it was all me / my fault.

    Have a really fast striped SSD array (three 240GB HDD's) was generally happy, and getting a peaked 1.7GB/s disk to disk transfer speed in file copying mode, but the Win 10 installation was reliably currupting and crashing, I'll try updating the RST driver package. and all other remedies.
