I have 2 - Seagate Barracuda 3TB drives running in a Raid 1 mirror setup through the built in Windows 7 software raid. I checked the computer management and it shows me failed redundancy. It does not however show me which drive is the failing one. I am attaching 2 print screens to illustrate. Can someone tell me how to check to see which drive is failing? Thank you in advance.

I would simply remove the drives...and then test each individually with a hard drive diagnostic.  I would then place them back in the RAID and see if the diagnostic tests them in paired status.

 

FWIW

I could certainly do that but I just assumed that someone had come across the same issue and since I could not find an answer via google then I came here.

Those links I posted...reflect exactly that...persons in same/similar situations and the suggestions they were provided.  I found more than 10 such topics via Google.

Neither of those links directly addresses my certain issue. The first link is to the Microsoft support center which is crap and the other is not the same as my issue. I do appreciate you taking your time to reply though. I will figure it out. Thank you.
