Disk with errors (errors occured - check smart report)

Recommended Posts

Hello, guys,


This week end, i installed a new cache drive. But in the process, it bend the cables and the card  from the M.2 controller where 3 of my HDD were. when i started unraid, they did not show up, then after fiddling a bit, they showed up. But it was not stable and one disconnected in the middle of a write operations.


One of the drive became disabled (red cross on disk 1). I did a smart short test on the three drives and they seemed fine. So i rebuild the array with the disk 1 in place.


It finished this morning, but there was 504 errors. Mainly because of disk 2 and a current pending sector.

I did smart extended test on all three drives. Disk 3 came back fine, but there was errors on disk 1 and 2 (errors occured - check smart report).

I just launched a parity check (without correction).


I ordered a new m.2 controller just in case there are more errors (could mean that the controller was damaged).


What do i do for disk 1 and 2?  it's only media on it, i would not die if i lose some of it. Are the errors really bad? or if there is no more errors, i should be fine? Right now, the overall server is working fine.


Thanks for the help

I just did it. I got Raw read error rate of 0 on disk 2 and 3, and error rate of 5 on the disk 1. Actually after reading into it, it does not seem to matter much because the worst is at 199. which is far above the trehold.

Also the multi zone error rate on disk 1 is also at 1.


I was wondering if it could be that only the controller /Cable is bad? Could it provoke all those errors? Should i replace the drives now or wait for the new controller/ cables to arrive?

I switched Disk 1. It rebuilded with a few errors (most likely a few seconds of a film were lost). Did a few preclear on the dying disk, and it was really dyning. I'm waiting for a second disk to come in to replace the other failing drive.

I'm also waiting for a new controller, Just to be sure.


Overall it was a good learning experience. Thanks guys for the help.
