    I just bought a Lacie HD Max (2TB) and set it to raid 1. How can I tell if the Raid 1 is working?
    (There are 2 1TB HD's and My Computer is showing 1TB so it seems like it should be working... how do I make sure?)
    Thanks!

    (P.S. The only answers I have seen involve simulating a HD failure with one of the drives and then checking the other one... I don't want to do this.)

    Thanks in advance :)

    Write a large file and watch disk activity?

    There should be some management software that shows you status of the array.
