    WD/HGST/Seagate/others

    Well it’s that time that I ask you all to comment with pros and cons of the disks you’re using, would you recommend the same to others looking for new disks? Each of the disk manufacturers have now rolled 2 (possibly more) of NAS drives with additional warranties etc. How old are your current...

    Hello, I have searched a lot in order to find a solution, but nothing since 3 years ago. I have 2 Nas Seagate STDD200 in stock :/ because I prefer to put my data on freenas than seagate OS (cf my 1st message) Two possibility : install Freenas on bay disk (not possible with freenas apparently)...

    One pending sector: Anything to worry about?

    I'm running six Seagate Constellation ES.3 drives in RAIDZ2 and recently had to replace one due to a high count of unreadable sectors. Now another of my drives is showing a single unreadable sector. I'd feel bad exchanging another drive with the seller so is there any way of repairing the bad...

    Hello all, Short summary, I have a FreeNAS setup at home with 4 x 3TB Seagate HDDs in a RAIDZ1 setup and yesterday one of the HDD failed (seems i'm on Santa's naughty list).

    A question about Seagate 10 TB drives

    I want to build a new RAIDZ2 pool with 10x10TB drives... I plan to use Seagate drives for this. I saw they have some problems with SAS cards, but I want to use them with SATA slots, so I hope it will not be a problem. My question is there are two 10 TB drives, ST10000NM0016 ( Enterprise ) and...

    LSI (Avago) 9207-8i with Seagate 10TB Enterprise (ST10000NM0016)

    Hi, I have issues after replacing WD disks with the Seagate ST10000NM0016 ones in my FreeNAS 11.0-U4 system. The geometry (RAIDZ2 with 8 disks) hasn't changed, I simply replaced the disks with the newer ones. Ever since then, I get periodically errors like (da6:mps2:0:45:0): SYNCHRONIZE...

    BUILD My first NAS Box

    I'm a newbie to the FreeNAS forums. I've been going through many hardware configurations for my NAS and finally came up with this list.

    Drives keep resilvering

    Just ordered in 3 Seagate 2tb hard drives and have dropped them into a Raid-Z config. Been trying to copy from my external HDD over to them to repopulate my media collection on the server, but every time I do, it seems like there's some critical error. The first time I tried plugging the...

    ashifting a-gogo: mixing 512e and 512n drives

    Because I'm becoming addicted to building FreeNAS systems, I'm constantly buying hardware. Usually it's on a budget, so I tend to work with what I have, not with what I want. Currently, I'm sitting on a mix of Seagate Constellation drives, pulled from a data-center somewhere. They are a mix...

    High capacity HDD

While the WD Red Pro have not found a disk > 8tb; Seagate Ironwolf has touched 10tb and HGST (owned by WD) has touched 12. The WD Red come with a 3 year warranty; red pro 5 years; Ironwolf 3y; ironwolf pro 5...
