I've run into a strange problem and there are theories abound suggesting that my RAID1 setup is the problem.
I've got a cash register program running which, inexplicably, was functioning normally throughout the entire day but did not record any transactions (logs, files, whatever) between 10AM and 4PM. Transactions were occurring normally, though, but there is no trace of them.
I think that there was a problem with the Point of Sales program. Others are suggesting that the RAID1 setup is responsible (although I don't believe the RAID or any of the drives had any problems and there was no rebuild in progress). I don't believe that a RAID issue will cause ONLY transaction data to be lost during a limited period of time.
The PC uses the Intel Matrix Storage to manage the RAID.
Does anyone have any insights which may explain this very specific data loss? Could it be the RAID that caused it?
