Hi,

 

I have two SSD raid 1 arrays.

 

When I run winsat formal -v it does not run a sequential assessment on my second raid array, and this appears to cause it to be incorrectly identified as a HDD.

 

i.e. when running winsat formal (or winsat diskformal) There is NO:

> Running: Storage Assessment '-seq -read -n 0'

 

How do I get winsat formal to run the missing part of its test (the sequential test on drive 1) so it correctly identifies the second SSD array?

 

Please note that I include the results of the winsat disk -v -seq -read -n 1 to show that this works correctly - if only I could get winsat to run it !!!!

 

Does anybody have any ideas?

 

Many thanks.
