So I open up Computer Management on my file serving computer in what has to be the first time in months or maybe even over a year and see that the mirror I had created of my 1TB HDD has "failed redundancy". I guess the "backup" HDD is missing (at least Windows thinks it is). Here's a screenshot:
This raises a number of questions. How long has my mirror been missing? And why didn't Windows tell me? What I would have preferred is if Windows maybe, idk... refused to work until the problem was fixed instead or something.
Is there any way to set it up so that next time it does this? So that next time when I have a potentially dead hard drive I find out about it that minute instead of finding out months and months after the fact?
