The motherboard offers protection for the data stored in hard disks by the user, by supporting NVIDIA MediaShield Storage, as well as NVIDIA MediaShield RAID technologies. MediaShield Storage automatically backs up files for the user in separate SATA disks (installed as per RAID 5 configuration) on a regular basis. In case of a disk failure, the user can easily restore files from the backups via an intuitive wizard. Besides, the configuration also allows faster access to data stored in the disks, and extra capacity for data storage. The technologies also incorporate an early warning system, which displays a visual alert to the user whenever one of the SATA disks in the RAID configuration starts failing.
