I’m interested in mirroring a pair of new drives in Storage Spaces. But if one drive eventually fails, will Windows 10 Storage Spaces raise an alert, or do I need to manually check Disk Management periodically to discover the failure?

    Hi,

    I tested in my lab, when one drive fails, we will see the following in Storage Space management:

    And when the disk is added back and health, it will repaired automatically:

    Thanks for your time!
    Best Regards,

    You could script something to pull it from the event logs.
