    So I have a 4 TB drive mirrored to an identical drive.

    My question is, if/when a drive fails, how will I be notified? Will something popup in the system tray? Or will I get some error message or what?

    I assume there is something that happens.. otherwise this software RAID would literally be completely useless.

    Still waiting for an answer. Seems like a fair question to ask on a Windows 7 Help and Support forum. Maybe I'm wrong though.

    I see. So an absolute failure of a feature. No reason Windows can't just cream at me if one of the disks in the mirror is having some error that would be visible in disk management itself (proving windows is aware of it)

    Oh well. Software RAID sucks anyway. I'll hand mirror the drives.
