weird problem with read errors on a data disk

Recommended Posts

I keep having this weird problem with read errors on a data disk.

I have RMA'd one and my second unit same problem, but it preclears fine.

I tried a different SATA cable that doesn't seem to have helped.


I am not sure if its got something to do with the type of disk i don't operate any other 8TB drives.

Extended Smart finished with no errors. its strange.

Anyone else know what is happening here, do i just ignore it ?

this makes sense my parity drives are seagate 8TB disks but are always spinning.

i am not going crazy.. thanks JorgeB


applied the changes to the 3 drives and rebooted. see how it goes.

Weirdly it happened again to me, i did reboot after issueing both the EPC disable and the lowcurrentspinup.


The errors happened when the drive spun up again.

i did a system reboot, do i need to power the whole system down for it to take effect ?
