If you have setup the drives as RAID1 in the controller then all that the O/S will see is one drive as that is all that the RAID controller presents to it

To understand more about HW RAID you need to install ACU (Array Configuration Utility) that comes with the controller. Lauch ACU and you can see your two drives are in a RAID container that makes only one logical drive to be seen by the OS level. Here is the download link for ACU:

I downloaded the ACU but it does not support this particular controller i.e. what the documentation says. After installing it did not find any supported documentation. Can you suggest any other options.
