The WD Drive utilities for the My Book Pro are above. What is odd with this program is, you only get to view information about the My Book when it's connected via Thunderbolt. If you want to change anything, you must use USB 3.0. With that said as you can see you can take a look at RAID configurations along with the health status.

Here is the message you receive when trying to configure RAID when connected to Thunderbolt.

After you connect via USB 3.0, a whole new world of options open up including sleep timer, drive erase, and of course RAID management options.
