Always good advice, though I think KillerBob already has that covered (viewtopic.php?f=31&t=61648&p=345836#p345829)PapaBear wrote:I would also try to maintain a complete and current backup - just in case.
No clue about OSX diags. As long as the diag is non-destructive it should be safe. You do need to shut down the pro before you remove the disk, and leave it off until the testing is complete.KillerBob wrote:Hi,
If I wanted to check the HD specifically, it being a Samsung F1 (HD103UJ), what Disk testing utility should I use? I can't locate a specific one for Samsung HDs, and I don't of any good generic ones for OSX. And, should I for instance use Tech Tool, is it safe to take out the specific HD from the Pro, test it, and reinsert? I.e. do I stand the chance of f...... something up on the HD?
I like to have one spare of each drive size I use on hand. Then I can replace the drive w/o delay when it fails. Backups are essential of course, but restoring them can take a while - I'd rather keep the array working if possible.KillerBob wrote:Hi,
I will continue to wing it. I have a solid backup, and when the drive finally fails I will replace it with another. The errors keep increasing everytime the NAS scrubbs it, so there is probably something wrong.
