Hello,

I want to turn my HTPC into a file server and stuff it with 4 x 3TB drives in RAID 5. However, my Asus e45m1-i deluxe does not have a RAID controller, and Windows 7 does not support Raid 5.

Is there any good software solution out there?

Thanks.

No one answers you post because there is NO software raid5 on Win7
You should not use software raid5 - if there is.

To create RAID5 you have 2 options:
1_ Use PCIe RAID controller - hardware assist http://www.neweggbusiness.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816115084&name=Controllers-RAID-Cards

2_ 100% hw raid up to five drives
