  1. Updated from 6.6.7 to 6.7.2 with no issues. Thanks!
  2. @testdasi - 20 years and no bad sectors, lucky. I had an issue with some of the Seagate 1.5TB drives back in the day, but other than that I have been pretty lucky also.. knock on wood. I didn't think it was normal, but wanted to verify since I haven't bought a larger platter drive in awhile (just recently replacing my old 3TB HGST's). After some back and forth with Seagate, they finally RMA'd the drives that failed pre-clear. I guess they didn't want to do the paperwork as they kept stating that 8 blocks is very low and not to worry. Long story short.. all is good here now. All drives are 0 bad sectors. Side note, on your TR build. Are you running ECC or just DDR4? I've been debating on upgrading my unRAID build to Ryzen/TR, but was waiting on stability. Thanks all who replied.
  3. I just picked up a 1950x that I will be doing a build for. With TR4 being quad channel, I have read the G.Skill CL14 (Samsung B-Die) kits gives you the best performance and stability. That is probably the route I am going to take. With you having a 2nd gen, you should have even better memory support than I. But any major manf. should be fine really (luckily memory prices are dropping). This site should help if you haven't seen it already. https://benzhaomin.github.io/bdiefinder/
  4. @Squid and @Frank1940 - Perfect. Thank you both for the quick response.
  5. New unRAID user here. Thanks to all the dev's and community members for your hard work! After running the trial, I knew this was the way to go. That first free fix gets us every time. What is the process for backing up the server config before performing upgrades? I looked at the 6.x wiki, but didn't see anything. I'm sure this is already out there somewhere, I just missed it. If everything is self contained to the flash drive, then I already have a backup. I just didn't want to corrupt any dockers or array configs. Thanks
  6. Yes they were all new drives. So far the other drives are fine. When I called Seagate Ironwolf support, they kept pushing their diag tool in order to RMA the drive. They didn't classify smartctl or other programs as valid which is POS. Their tool just does read tests from what I can tell. I'll proceed w/ the online RMA process and ship the drive back. Thank you
  7. Hello, I am new to the forum. I am currently running a trial of Unraid for media storage. I picked up some Seagate 8TB Ironwolf drives and installed them along with an IBM M1015 HBA in IT mode. After 2 days of up time, one of the drives threw a SMART warning with 8 bad sectors. Is this normal for a new drive with the platter densities today? Just trying to figure out if I should continue building the array and watch for sector count increases, or RMA it. I know Seagate wants you to run Seatools and unless there is a physical issue/error, they will give some push back. Thank you for any advise. Matt
  8. I know this is an old post, but if you still have them I will take all remaining. Thanks
