Windows 2003 Standard Edition - Alert of Disk Failure

Posted on 2005-05-17
Last Modified: 2011-04-14
I have a Win 2k3 Standard server with a mirrored volume.  I was wondering if there is an option in the OS (or some software) that will alert me via email if a disk fails?  

Pretty straight forward question I think! :)
Thanks in advance.
