Event log disk error - disk or RAID card?

    The following error log has been recorded every 12 hours or so for the past
    couple of days in my System event viewer:

    The driver has detected that device \Device\Harddisk0\DR0 has predicted that
    it will fail. Immediately back up your data and replace your hard disk
    drive. A failure may be imminent.

    I actually have a couple of new disks on order at the moment to replace the
    RAID-0 set I'm using so it's not too much of a problem if the error is from
    the disks. However, I obviously don't want to put new disks on a faulty
    controller card (2 year old EIO jobbie).

    Is there any way to find out what the source of this error actually is?

    Looks like a SMART error - run a SMART utility to see what the numbers
    are, and maybe run a diagnostic utility from the drive manufacturer to
    see if you can pin it down further.

  3. It's a SMART error and it's coming from your first disk.
