SMART and Storage Spaces (Windows 10)

Recommended Posts

Hi;

I was just trying out MS 'Storage Spaces' on WIndows 10 (1803). I noticed that after I set up a new pool (as logical Drive E:) that the drive in the pool no longer shows its S.M.A.R.T. data in AIDA64 (it's no longer listed in  'Storage/Smart').

Is this expected?

Currently, there is only this one drive in the ('simple') pool, a Samsung 850 Pro 512 GB drive. It showed up in AIDA64 SMART before I put it in a (the only) Storage Spaces pool.

I can see still see an entry for the 850 Pro 512 GB drive under

   'Storage/Windows Storage',

   'Storage/Physical drives'

and

   'Storage/ASPI'

There does not appear to be an entry for the physical drive itself under

   'Storage/Logical drives' (Just the pool space as E:),

or

   'Storage/ATA'  (Just the pool space as E:),

This is with AIDA64 Extreme 5.99.4900.

Just for fun I ran  HWINFO, and it seems to be able to show the SMART data for the physical drive even thought it is part of a 'Storage Spaces' pool.

It would be nice if I could still see the SMART data for drives in a Storage Spaces pool (with AIDA64).

Thanks;

It's normal if the drive disappears from the list of ATA drives as it is managed by Windows.  You can try enabling the two RAID related options in AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Stability and restart AIDA64.  Let me know if it fixes the issue.
