comment Storage Spaces - Why Use Parity?
I see. I thought some hardware controllers had ZFS like functionality. During idle it would compare parity against stored data and proactively find corrupted data and attempt to repair it. It may have not been clear but my question was about MS Storage Pools and ReFS, not hardware based RAID.

I was under the impression that hardware based raid required parity for automated 'scrubber' functionality (automatic corruption repair). This feature is not typically available for hardware based mirrors, right?

Is the check only switch light on the resources ?

comment Alternatives to SMART for Monitoring HDD Corruption
Sudden failures will not have produced corrupt backups. I am primarily concerned with longer term degradation that is not being reported correctly by SMART, and resulting in unreadable sectors in my data.

The media patrol functionality you describe is what I am looking for. I have some non raid drives I would like to monitor using a service or scheduled task. A light weight version chkdsk that only scans.

Good to know for the future. Clarified original question that I am unable to use ReFS.

Perhaps ReFS for windows would provide this functionality? Problem is I have an existing 2008 R2 server box, which I need to protect now.

Sorry, I didn't indicate Windows in original question. I have edited for clarity.
