  1. Yes, I'm ressurecting an old thread... So I am doing this to backup my unraid to a second NAS. But after about 12 hours or so rsync terminates and my /mnt/user directory becomes inaccessable. Even trying to go to it results in a "directory user transport endpoint is not connected" error. Rebooting unraid fixes this issue, so I'm assuming it is an out of memory or swap file error or something like that. I've seen a few people post about this issue in here but haven't found a definitive solution. Anyone run into this? How did you solve it?
  2. FYI - I did finally bring up the system and it started the rebuild over again without any hassle.
  3. I was in the process replacing a failing drive yesterday and a rebuild was in progress. Had a huge wind front come through and not only did the power go out for a few minutes the battery backup also failed, resulting in a power outage to the server during the rebuild process. I'm not worried about a loss of data as I have the whole array backed up elsewhere, but before I power it back on, I just wanted to know what the process would be to make sure it either continues or restarts the parity rebuild. Will it run a parity check and notice the drive is bad and then rebuild it? What should
  4. Do you have more info/link for this $139 deal on 4TB ST4000DM000 Internal? It will be at tiger direct, though it shows the current price now. Will change on the 29th. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?sdtid=6460706&EdpNo=7739052&SRCCODE=LINKSHARE&cm_mmc_o=-ddCjC1bELltzywCjC-d2CjCdwwp&utm_source=Linkshare&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_campaign=lw9MynSeamY&AffiliateID=lw9MynSeamY-..9h0TgjRRnk_KNZoq9RMQ
  5. Quite a few people, since Seagate has honored the warranty on many of them anyway. Many people on AVS have done this and had no issues returning a drive under warranty, and others get an OEM package message. You can also open these drives without destroying the enclosure (Unlike some others) but it takes longer.
  6. This is an excellent deal. The drive inside is the latest 5900 Rpm model, which would be good in an unraid box.
  7. Many companies will say that the warranty is voided on external drives once you remove them, but technically the warranty is only voided on the entire external drive. The internal drive has a serial number just like any other and I've known many people who have RMAd drives from external enclosures with no problems. As to the rebate thing, yeah, I don't ever deal with any prices that involve mail in rebates no matter what they are, but other people are more brave than I am.
  8. Seagate Internal 4TB Drive ST4000DM000 will be $139 on B.Friday. Not "Great" but a good deal. Still the 3TB deals are much more cost effective. (3 Drives I've seen now will be under $90)
  9. WD Elements 3TB Hard Drive - $69 with a massive $70 MIR (If you don't like rebates then this isnt for you) http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?sdtid=6473612&EdpNo=8556044&SRCCODE=LINKSHARE&cm_mmc_o=-ddCjC1bELltzywCjC-d2CjCdwwp&utm_source=Linkshare&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_campaign=je6NUbpObpQ&AffiliateID=je6NUbpObpQ-VK3iGuMG_ksEpxpYvl5nDQ 3TB Seagate Backup Plus Desktop External Hard Drive for PC/Mac $89.99 Promo Code : BF405 Office Depot 3TB Toshiba Canvio 3TB External Drive - $84.99 (Black Friday)
  10. Just a followup. I ended up getting 4 new hard drives based on what was on sale. (2 3tb and 2 4tb) - Basically just did replaces on each drive after a pre-clear. All is well! Seemed the easiest way to do it.
  11. Current price is $139 There is a $30 mail in rebate (Yuck) but it does bring the total price to $109 which is as low as I've seen anywhere for this drive. The catch? Limit 2 per customer and 1 rebate per (person/business/address/household) http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-Details.asp?EdpNo=3580092&sku=TSD-3000EFRX%20%20&SRCCODE=WEM3809C&cm_mmc=email-_-Main-_-WEM3809-_-tigeremail3809&utm_source=EML&utm_medium=main&utm_campaign=WEM3809&cm_lm=eandesdad_2001@yahoo.com&lk=13

  13. Thanks. I had already done 0 & 1. I think this is the way to go, 2 of my drives had quite a few reallocated sectors where the other 2 did not have many at all. I think they can last a month or two until I see another hard drive sale. Just started #2 and rebuild in progress on that disk.
