How to get an email alert from Server 2003 when disk "Redundancy Fails"

Last Modified: 2010-04-18
As a Microsoft Action Pack subscriber, I have been running Microsoft Exchange and other server products for years in a home-office on cheap workstation hardware using the Software RAID-1 built into the OS.   (It works great > don't scold me . .  I use hardware raid on real servers for my clients)

There does not seem to be any built-in way to get an alert from Windows when disk "Redundancy Fails"   I have had drives fail but I only catch it on periodic inspection of event logs or the disk management console.

Is there a third party or any other way to get an email alert when there are drive or other problems.   The Small Business Server may handle this better, but I just migrated to Exchange 2007 on a 64bit computer and that isn't a setup offered in the Small Bus Server yet.
