Presumably the error you're referring to is a S.M.A.R.T. generated warning related to the reliability of a disk drive.

We'll need to see the entire message, verbatim, and also the context in which it appears.  At that point there will be enough information to start assessing the situation.

Thank you.  It is unfortunate that the system is not reporting the nature of the S.M.A.R.T. issue.  The info it has given you is in the nature of a trained mechanic telling you "Something's wrong with your car."

I suggest that you download the Passmark Disk Checkup S.M.A.R.T. utility, and run it against the array to see if the S.M.A.R.T. issue is on one of the bound drives, or in the array.  This will give specific information.

If you see orange or red entries, those are things that should be investigated.

If not, then the error is not one that can be investigated from the Windows side using S.M.A.R.T.  You'd have to take the array controller at its (unsupported) word, and remove or replace "the solid-state device that is used as a cache device", then investigate that device separately.
