    My desktop computer has 2 x 250 GB western digital hard drives in it, in a Raid 0 configuration. Now that the pc is more than 3 years old, I want to check the hard drive's S.M.A.R.T status and perform some simple diagnostics on it to check that it's still ok.

    The computer's running windows vista and under disk drives in the device manger all that is listed is "ARRAY".

    Now I've got a laptop with just one seagate drive in it and I can run seatools to check S.M.A.R.T and run drive tests to check it's all working ok but with the desktop pc, all software only recognizes the array and is not able to perform the tests on it.

    My question is how can I check the health of the 2 hard drives in the desktop pc?
