Wd Red dying? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I got 3 3TB reds and all of them have been flawless so far. Swap out sata cables and see if that helps.

Aren't reds meant to be for servers / NAS' ?
post #14 of 14
I've got 4 2TB Reds in my media/backup server that writes at least 2-3 TB a week as backup duty with Storage Spaces in Windows 2012, and haven't had any problems since building the server six months ago. That being said, anything "important" gets saved to "parity" spaces in W'12.

Most data corruption errors I've seen while writing data turned out to be bad RAM. Without ECC memory, you could have something bit flip in RAM and be written out to disk without so much as a warning or hint that something went wrong. When you read it back, you might think the disk is at fault, when it could have been written "correctly" as bad data to begin with.

You will need to run some comprehensive tests to regain trust in that drive.

The drives have RAID optimized firmware with TLER enabled, which allows them to run in RAID without dropping out due to timeouts when on-disk errors occur. There's nothing that says you can't use it as a single drive in a non-server, non-NAS application - though I'd probably get a 7200 RPM Black or SSD for that. =)
