I recently downloaded and installed Smartmontools for Windows and installed the 64-bit version. smartctl --help reports that's it's release "smartctl 6.1 2013-03-16 r3800 [x86_64-w64-mingw32-win7-sp1] (sf-6.1-2)" .
I have an Areca ARC-1882-IX-12 SAS 2.0/SATA-III/G.0Gbps RAID card with 4GB of cache RAM and a BBU.
When I run the following command in an administrator command prompt :
smartctl -a -d areca,2/2 /dev/arcmsr1
I get :
smartctl 6.1 2013-03-16 r3800 [x86_64-w64-mingw32-win7-sp1] (sf-6.1-2)
/dev/arcmsr1: No Areca controller found
=======> VALID ARGUMENTS ARE: ata, scsi, sat[,auto][,N][+TYPE], usbcypress[,X],

Use smartctl -h to get a usage summary
Does anyone know what the problem is here?
