Get an email from my FreeNAS box yesterday saying I had a whopping 16 Offline Uncorrectable Sectors. Not the end of the world, should have a few days to get a replacement in... Start looking for replacement drive deals, so far nothing thrilling. Happened to be looking at the drive stats on FreeNAS, when I see something far longer than the million NFS export messages flash by on the bottom log scroll, so I expand the log. The POS went from just a 'start thinking about finding me a replacement' to FreeNAS saying the drive is spitting so many errors, the drive is being ignored, array degraded! Drive (Original set of 4) is a 3TB Seagate Desktop Drive. Light usage (media, software, etc., storage), total time powered on 1.5 years, with a whopping 64 start/stop cycles. Best part is, this is the second of the set of 4 to need replacement in the last 2 months... All bought new, of course out of warranty thanks to Seagate cheaping out on warranty... So, now have to find yet another drive to replace this one, and then I guess get ready for the other 2 to crap out... So, uh, if anyone spots a deal on either a Hitachi or a WD 3TB 7200 drive (would say Toshiba, but have no experience with them outside of laptop drives), please share!
