Windows 7: Hard Drive Errors and a small RAID Question

Hard Drive Errors and a small RAID Question

Any way to stop windows from telling me?



Here is the problem, It has ALWAYS been like this since it was at work (i got this from work today) we didnt notice since it was on an XP machine for about a year.



Its driving me nuts because the drive works fine. Is there any way to stop SMART from giving me this error?

Now for the RAID question.

Will my RAID controller tell me that this drive is failing and make me press F1 every time if i try do a RAID 1?

Thanks Guys

I don't want to state the obvious but I would take heed of the messages you have received, looks like to me your drive is on the way out.
