  1. My worry is that one or few will fail outside the warranty and then no rma and then no replacement. These drives are so expensive that I can’t afford it. I would sell the 8tb to help pay for the 12tb. 8tb space increase is nice! I know seagate are a bit dodgy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Because one failed and worried others might fail. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I am about to buy 5 x 12tb seagate ironwolfs to replace my 6 x archives. As this is going to be a very expensive purchase, I just need to know if this ok or not? I would prefer to buy 14tb/16tb hdd but I am not sure when they will be out. I need to make a decision soon as the archives warranties are running out in about a month.

  4. HELP. One drive dead

    Thanks all. The drive rebuild and parity check completed without errors. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. HELP. One drive dead

    I finished the rebuild and went to dashboard and saw that it seems that a parity check occurred whilst doing the rebuild and no errors were found. Does this actually mean a parity heck occurred? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. HELP. One drive dead

    What’s happens if errors are found? What’s the procedure? (I don’t have backups.) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Best 8TB Parity Drive?

    Will the write speed of my server improve if I changed all drives from 8tb archive to 12tb ironwolf?
  8. HELP. One drive dead

    I am now rebuilding the drive. Do you need to do a parity check after the rebuild finishes?
  9. HELP. One drive dead

    I don’t have a spare computer but there must be a way to run preclear in a Windows environment? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. HELP. One drive dead

    I see. Interesting. Then what’s a good alternative preclearing program that I can run on Windows. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. HELP. One drive dead

    If I install an non-clear/non-pre cleared disk then unraid will clear is first and then rebuild the data? How long does the clearing process take on a 8tb disk? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. HELP. One drive dead

    Is there a way to run preclear without unraid? I want the server to to be unpowered and all hdds spun down as I am worried about other hdds failing whilst the server unraid is prelcearing the new hdd. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. HELP. One drive dead

    Yes, in the syslog there were some reads and at the end there were some writes before the disk was disabled. Anyway, I have sent the disk back to Seagate. Hopefully it will be a quick turnaround.
  14. HELP. One drive dead

    But at the time of the failure, the hdd was only being read due to the parity check and no writing was taking place.
  15. HELP. One drive dead

    I put the disc back into unraid and it showed up. However unraid it warning of the reallocated sector count. All other hdds are zero but disk2 is 11728. Are you sure that unraid wont disable a drive because of this? My biggest concern is whether the data on disk2 was written to properly when I was writing to it (before the failure)?
