    Areca-1882 file corruption issue



      I'll get right to it. I have an Areca-1882 in a MacPro5,1 running OS X 10.10.5.

      There are 16 drives connected to it setup as a single RAID5 RAIDSet. I will mention that I recently upgraded the Areca firmware to 1.52 from 1.49.

      Recently, I noticed files not displaying correctly as portrayed in the screenshots:

      These are all the same images, but the preview in Finder differs from the thumbnail, which differ from the look of the file when opened in the Raw Editor and in Adobe Elements.

      Since this is happening to every file on my volume, i believe it's a driver or setting issue.

      My settings are as follows:

      I ran a speed test and while i know RAID5 isn't the best for large files, I didn't think the speed was an issue.



      Any advise or tips are appreciated.
