    Uh ?

    which is it the drives or the controller cards ??

    whats the working environment ??
    Data center ?

    are they on UPS power ?

    temp control ?

    brand and models of drives ?


    I have setup arrays that run for 2-3 years with parhaps 1 or 2 drive losses but never 2 at the same time....


    For the record:

    It is 4 identical Seagate 73GB SCSI HDD(ST373207LW) forming RAID 10 on a Adaptec 2130S controller.

    A system check reveiled the Drive1 failed, and the Drive0 is in fact ok.

    The server was located in a server rack inside our company's office, with 24hrs air-conditioning and UPS attached.
