    Feels like i'm bombarding this forum...

    Anyway, i'm not getting any SMART info on my RAID 1 arrays. I'm using NVRaid, is this normal?
    I really wanted to get that info on the drives, so i used the safely remove hardware option, removed one of the HDDs, and the 2 HDDs from the broken array appeared on windows explorer, but i still couldnt get any SMART info.

    Cant seem to get any info on this on the net, except for just one case where someone was using an intel raid controller.

    no smart on nvraid whether you use single drive or 2 drives
    only way to get smart is dont use nvraid and just use windows ide drivers
    but then you wont get raid.
