Improved Parity Invalid message

1 post in this topic Last Reply

Recommended Posts

Currently, the message "Parity is invalid. Click to spin down device." is displayed when a user adds a parity drive where none existed before. 

It is paired with the call to action "Click to spin down the drive" which appears in the hover for all drives.

This has the undesired effect of looking like the drive is in an errored state and needs to be spun down.


I suggest the Parity Invalid message read "Parity is invalid."

I further suggest that the option to spin down the drive be replaced with "Click for more details.".

When users click the message, display a help page that explains invalid parity including the fact that new parity drives show as invalid until the first parity sync is completed.
