Windows XP software RAID5 failed drive notificatio

Recommended Posts

I've just installed a sofware RAID-5 array on my Windows XP Pro using the Tom's Hardware Hack and it works as expected, fast reads and slow writes, because i don't need the speed it's a good and cheap redudant solution for me. The problem is that I disconected a drive to see what happened and windows didin't notify me i had a failed array, the only way to see is to go to disk manegement. Now if i didn't disconect the drive on purpose it could be days or weeks before i found out that i had a failed drive. Is there any option in windows to notify me instantly in case of a failed array?

Thanks for any help and sorry for my bad english.
