Windows 7: How to monitor disk health in raid config?

How to monitor disk health in raid config?

I have set up 2 seagate drives in raid 0 stripe on an Intel Rapid Storage controller and would like to be able to monitor the health of these drives.

Any program that I've tried reports it as a SCSI Disk Device and offers no info.

I've also tried to find something that would monitor the controller but no luck.

If anyone could offer me some advice it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, Ken

Thanks, that's where I got the latest drivers (11.​6.​0.​1030) but it was just drivers no utility. Anything that looks like a utility (Manager) has old drivers.

What should I do?

Thanks, Ken

Should I over install the old drivers to get the utility then update the drivers??

Ok, took a chance and installed package with older set of drivers. I have the monitoring tool and everything seems to be working great. Not going to update the drivers just yet.
