Hard disk failed
Tue Nov 27, 2018 3:41pm

It was a non-event really. I bought a new one and put it in and the array rebuilt.

Now I've got another failure on the same array. I don't know what's happening, but all the disks are the same model and age so I wonder if they've worn out or something. This time I bought two disks, I'll save the second disk for the next failure.

Good thing I went RAID6, if a second disk fails before I get the replacement, I won't lose my array.

            How about those little paint drawings (or whatever) that make you laugh? I figure I put HOURS of work into creating that kind of stuff (well mine are 3D models and CAD drawings), a thousand dollars... more
