  1. Yes, it is the Corsair CX500. Like I said when I selected it, it was one of the recommended drives here for up to 15 drives. But maybe it has gone bad. I swapped the PSU out for a Seasonic X-650 and that seems to have fixed it: Data-Rebuild in progress. Total size: 4 TB Current position: 326.82 GB (8%) Estimated speed: 100.22 MB/sec Estimated finish: 611 minutes
  2. I thought the CX500 was good for 15+ drives. I only have 14 and they're low power drives. But thanks that will be one thing I will check since I have another PSU available that has a higher output.
  3. Thanks for your help. I'll have to check the connections again, but I'll have to do that later. I do have another power supply that I can try and I also have a motherboard, if I need to swap that out. I'll have to check and see if I have more SATA cables. BTW, when I went to shut down, I still had Windows File Explorer connected to the flash share and I was getting errors unmounting the drives. I had shutdown my desktop computer that was previously connected and restart that and then reconnect the browser to the Tower and then I noticed the Parity drive was missing. So
  4. OK, I cancelled the rebuild, stopped, shutdown and the connections looked fine, but I pulled the first 3 data connectors from the SS-500 5-in-3 enclosure and reconnected them. Now I'm only getting 200-300 KB/s, so I think I made it worse.
  5. Well those attached files don't look very readable! And I didn't zip them.
  6. Yes, the new disk was precleared 3 times and it's been in storage for a while (about 3 years ago). I assume the disk won't go bad in storage. syslog.1 syslog.2
  7. I attached the one that I created when I first started the rebuild. Hope that helps. I haven't checked here in a while. The 6.x version that I downloaded and have actually used on a test server was still beta. I'll definitely be looking into upgrading. syslog-2017-02-28.txt
  8. A couple of days ago I noticed that one of my disks redballed. I figured it was likely bad because of errors that I'd seen and decided to replace it. The drive that I replaced was an Hitachi 2TB and I replaced it with a HGST 4TB Coolspin. And proceeded to rebuild the drive. I'm only seeing between 1 and 2 MB per second rebuild speed. At this rate, it will take about 25 - 30 days to rebuild the drive. That doesn't seem normal. Here is my system info: ASUS M4A785-M Motherboard AMD Sempron 145 CPU 1GB DDR2 RAM Corsair CX500 PSU UnRAID v5.0.6 Parity: Seagate ST4000DM000
  9. All Newegg shell shocker deals are good through the end of the day - 12 Midnight PT (3 AM ET the next day). Not true. There are typically several DIFFERENT Shell Shocker deals each day ... and each expires when the next one starts. For example, today's Shell Shocker special has 5 different deals -- the first (an AMD A8-6600K combo) good from midnight - 9:59AM; the 2nd (WD 3TB EZRX) good from 10AM-12:59PM; the 3rd (ViewSonic monitor) good from 1PM - 2:59PM; the 4th (Asus Notebook) good from 3PM - 5:59PM; and the last (Patriot Viper Memory) good from 6PM - 11:59PM. While w

  11. I started a preclear on my 2 Seagate 5TB external drives and ran into this same slow issue connecting to USB 2.0 connection. I didn't see any easy way to take these apart or test with a SATA connection which I was able to do with the Seagate 4TB Backup Plus external drives. This was going to take "forever" at 22.6 MB/s! Here is what I saw at 50% complete: Pre Read in progress on /dev/sda: 50% complete.

  12. BTW, the v1.2 has much brighter LED's than either of the v1.1s.
  13. I ordered 3 last week when they were on sale for $60. All 3 have green PCBs. 1 has 2012.08.08 Ver:1.2 on the inside of PCB and has white Molex connectors. 2 have 3-5 12Gb V1.1 and have black Molex connectors. On one of the V1.1s, the 2nd bay will not initialize (?) if it's connected to my MB SATA ports. It will work fine if it's connected to either of the controllers that I have. Depending on the MB SATA port connected to it, it's very slow to boot or I get a message on unRAID boot - "ata5: softreset failed (1st FIS failed)". I would have never noticed had I not put that one in firs
