    Is this a software RAID or Hardware RAID?

    If software raid there are some WMI functions to check NTFS volumes.  

    If it is hardware RAID then you would need to use utils/apps specific to the controller card as hardware raids present the array as one single "disc" to the OS and each controller has custom features/functions specific to each.  Check your vendor site for monitoring apps that will run from within windows.
