    Thanks bilbo1337. I read about too, but the server was working fine for at least 6 or 7 years. Hence why I was thinking it was HDDs at first. But I checked the drives that fall out and they are ok. Health check report is ok. And when I put them back and resilver they work. Anyhow, I got a new...
