I was wondering if Windows 7 keeps track of any hard drive events that somehow tell me how my drives are doing.
Also, what if the drives are on a RAID volume? Does Windows record events for the individual drives?
Finally, what would be a set of relatively reliable events of my hard drive performance that are indicative of the overall health of the drive? (even if Windows does not keep track of them, but maybe some other tool does?)
PS: I saw the question: How to check the health of a hard drive, but the answers in that thread point to software solutions that run tests on your drive, as opposed to looking at the history of recent read/write failures/events.
