Hello Experts -
I've been digging around and can't seem to find a product that does what I'm looking for. It seems it would be a simple task, yet very valuable, and I'm surprised I can't find anything provided 3rd party.
I have several windows 7 Pro machines that I use as appassure backup servers. They run RAID 5 at the windows software level. I'd really like some sort of alerting either by email, or an annoying sound played loudly over the speakers, or both, if a hard disk failure or bad block is detected on any drive. I know there are windows events logged when an array becomes degraded, or even when a bad block is encountered in a particular disk.
Anyone know of a product that will do this for windows 7 / server 2008?
