Critical Event but no disk ID.

So I get this Critical Event error, 3 of them all at about the same time and the only details ADM provides is pasted below. Nowhere can I find which of my 6 hard drives this error belongs to.
Anyone got a clue how to interpret this? Do I have to run checkdisk on all 6 of my drives? I don't see any indication of the error on the disc summaries under the events tab either.

Event type: 1
Event source: Disk
Event category: 0
Event code: 7
Date: 2012/02/28
Time: 09:53:51
Description: The device, \Device\Harddisk11\DR12, has a bad block.

Another thing that bugs me is why can't ADM provide the volume labels in addition to the letter?

JimH,

Did you have an external drive plugged in at the time of the error message? This includes USB flash and SD cards.

Does Windows Event Manager have any further information?
