  1. This approach was needed before, when disks controllers lacked advanced firmware functionality. Like you said, if a block is read and it doesn't check against its CRC, the firmware tries to recover the data from its CRC, and if it fails, it will mark the sector as a pending sector. When you write the sector again, it will store the value in a new spare sector designated by the firmware to occupy its place, and mark the old one as a reallocated sector. That's why you don't need fancy random patterns to test modern disks. That's why we read the disk in the pre-read, to force the disk
  2. If it's marked as mounted, then it's mounted. Depending the settings in Unassigned Devices, it auto mounts USB disks when plugged.
  3. You're wrong again. You need a code to run this command, code to stop it, code to detect if a sync command is issued and pause the operation to prevent a docker container from hanging on stop, code to collect/compare SMART attributes, code to send notifications etc. So believe me when I say it's not just a button.

  4. Your post wrongly assumes that every new drive is empty. Many USB drives people use to shuck comes formated in NTFS from the factory. So no, not every new drive is wipe clean from factory. You can't also guarantee that the disk don't become magnetized if it is exposed to a strong magnetic field prior to installation. And you wrongly assume every drive added is a new empty drive, not a drive prior used in FreeNAS, Openvault etc. Other wrong assumption is that every bit written into the disk is a zero. Look at this topic and see many problems in zeroing that occur because of defective RAM. I'm

  6. Your root filesystem is getting full and the script stopped to prevent any possible problems. Try to reboot and then start it again.
  7. You're using an old version of the plugin which suffered a bug with those exact symptoms. Enviado de meu SM-G985F usando o Tapatalk
  8. Good news, just finished mounting my V2 Pi-KVM and this thing works flawlessly, much better than my old Supermicro motherboard IPMI. Ok, hardware monitoring is absent, so no hardware errors etc, BUT media mount and live CD boot works, you can easily setup your BIOS, power on, power off or reset your machine, use virtual keyboard and mouse etc. So far so good.
  9. Dan, just took a look into the problem and apparently it was easier to fix than I though. Just committed a version 2021.01.03 of Preclear Plugin, please let me know if it works correctly for you. Again, thanks and sorry for the delay.
  10. Hi Dan, I'm on a vacation this week, but will take a look soon as possible. Thanks for tracking the problem and sorry for the delay. Enviado de meu SM-G985F usando o Tapatalk
  11. Dan, have you any diagnostic of what this is about? Can it be UD refreshing and then Preclear so there are times which preclear info is missing? Enviado de meu SM-G985F usando o Tapatalk
  12. There was a bug introduced recently that lead to the exact behavior you're describing. Please update your pugin and start again. If you can't find the icon on Unassigned Devices, take a look at the Preclear Plug-in in the Tools menu. Enviado de meu SM-G985F usando o Tapatalk
  13. This is a known bug, just released an update that fixes that.
  14. 1) probably not, but your speed is on par with others I've seen on reports for that disk size. 2) it's a difficult feature to implement, but there is a dirty hack you can do. Stop your preclear session, go to <Flash>/config/plugins/preclear.disk/ and find the file named <serial of the disk>. resume . Change the value of the variable >cycles< accordingly. Go to the webgui and click to start a preclear, and then choose to resume the preclear session.
