  1. I transferred the drives to a new computer and used the same thumb drive for unraid. Everything is currently working fine and my speeds went up to 70mb/s during check. The check usually lasts 2 days so I will watch my performance and reply back here if things go back to how they where.
  2. Thank you, let me double check my settings and have it run again.
  3. I swapped the controller and the issue remains. Looks like I need to replace the HDD. So I have two questions: 1) Will just swapping the drive kick off the rebuilt process or should I do something in advance? 2) I am planning on migrating the entire unraid server on another pc (newer hardware) will migrating the drives over and using the same thumbdrive for the license work or do I need to perform some special preparation?
  4. After running for about 12 hours it was still at 40%. That was when I went to sleep and I woke up in the morning with the following error: I am still attaching the smart report in the hopes it retained some of the extgended scan. I am also starting another extended scan once my new PCIE SATA card arrives today. I am in the hopes that it might be that causing issues since its much cheaper and easier to replace than a 12tb HDD (also upgrading from a 6 port to a 10 port SATA card) and worst case scenario if it fails it still gives me room for 4 more drives. tower-smart-20210726-1023.zip
  5. Thanks I will try that now.
  6. I had the diagnostic files attached on my first post. Regardless I rebooted my unraid pc and I put it into maintenance mode. The issue is still there so I made a new diagnostic file and attaching it to this post. Just as an FYI I had this issue a few months back too (slow parity check) and I made a post about it here. I was told I had a bad SATA cable so I ordered new ones to replace all the drives. That seemed to fix the issue until now. Thank you for all your help. tower-diagnostics-20210725-1103.zip
  7. So I should run xfs_repair on the parity drive too? I tried to run the parity check and it’s now running at 600kb/sec so it will finish in 300 days lol…
  8. It worked! This is the command I used in hopes it helps other people in the future: xfs_repair -v -L /dev/sdi1
  9. Thank you I will try that now and reply back with my results. Edit when you say from gui do you mean the command line inside of unraid? Or the Check disk option? I used the command on the command line and I got this response: Should I use the -L option or should I do something else first? I have tried running the array again but the result is the same.
  10. I ran it from the command line and I used this syntax: xfs_repair -v /dev/sdi I also used the gui with the command -nv but it did not fix anything. I will run the command again and attach a log here shortly. All commands where run in Maintenance mode. xfs_repair -nv.txt
  11. So out of nowhere one of my newest drives (couple of months old) became uncountable. So I tried XFS Repair and I got the following error: Any way I can get to drive restored using the parity drive? tower-diagnostics-20210723-2035.zip
  12. Thank you for all your help. I am psyched that I had no drive loss. With the current prices of storage and potential loss of tons of data I was worried I had failed drives. Without your help I would of probably taken the loss and went storage hunting.
  13. Good news is that my speeds have been fixed by replacing all my sata cables. The bad news is that two of my drives still show as unmountable unless I format them so I would lose all the data they currently contain. Any ideas on how I can get them back online without wiping them?
  14. I ordered 12 sata cables so that I can replace all my current old cables I have been using for years. I will update you tomorrow once the cables arrive. Thank you for your help.
  15. I recently had some errors during my parity check so I did not think much of it and tried to repair it. The parity repair was running an average of 600kb/second on a 12tb drive. I noticed that another drive was emulated so I tried to drop one of the two parity drives to replace the emulated drive. That also was running the repair at under 1mb/s (average of 600kb/s). Then I reverted the drives back into their original position. Smart is showing no errors so I tried using a docker of Drive Speed and the results I got from it where: Even the slower drives have speed on the benchmark that are higher than what I am getting on the parity repair. So I am out of ideas on how to proceed. I have attached my diagnostic logs and my specs are: Any help is deeply appreciated. tower-diagnostics-20210525-2305.zip
