Get health status for Western Digital My Book II Studio on Win 10


I’m using a very old (13y) Western Digital My Book II Studio (2x 1TB configured as RAID1). It still works fine, but I’d like to know the health status of the drive. How do I do that?

I already downloaded the most recent version of “WD DRIVE UTILITIES FOR WINDOWS”, but it keeps showing “Attach a supported WD Drive”, so I’m not sure how to proceed…

The USB device driver Windows 10 (21H1) uses is from Microsoft, the device is just called “WD My Book USB Device”.

Any ideas?
