How can I programmatically get the physical drives that compose a VROC RAID?

I am developing a program that finds the physical drives within a certain enclosure on a system, and allows a user to "eject" one, by making it safe to remove while the system is on(unless its the drive with the OS of course). These drives may or may not be configured in a VROC RAID. If they are, Windows and all its API calls I'm using do not see the physical drives that compose the RAID, but rather just see the RAID as a drive. I understand the logic behind that. But is there a way to programmatically see the drives that make up the RAID? Because I would like to display the physical drives that are within the enclosure this software is for.

I recognize that someone can go into the VROC GUI and see the drives within a VROC RAID and there is an "remove drive" button. But I want my program to display the drives in the GUI as they are physically located in the enclosure. And ideally, the user can just use my program to eject drives in that system. But if there's no way to do that programmatically with VROC or otherwise, I can show a message that mentions needing to disable the VROC RAID volume in VROC GUI in order to remove the drive. But I still want to just be able to "see" the physical drives behind the RAID so I can display them.

Thank you for your help.
