I think you should have been abit clearer on your initial query as to not waste people time googling on your behalf IMO cause I was also mislead by your initial query.

If that is your concern and you do not wish to recover / RMA the drive just take a drill and drill thru the drive platters.

I was thinking of that too, but realized the screws are star-shaped, not the usual + or -....

Thanks for helping to link the article. I saw this earlier, but it didn't really answer my doubt. My scenario is that I replaced a slightly faulty disk in my Nas and I was wondering if my data is irretrievable and it's safe to dispose of this disk without formatting. My pc is a little fragile and I didn't want to take the risk of opening it to plug in the disk to format.

The disk is slightly faulty in that the Nas will show that disk is not initialized when the Nas is awoken from hibernation. If I repair the storage pool, it will be ok. If I do a smart test on the disk, it's ok. If I don't let my Nas hibernate, it's also ok. So it seems like only the waking from hibernation is the problem for the disk.
Have u replaced the old HDD with a new one in the NAS? Any issue with the new HDD after it goes into hibernation?

I'm asking cos from your description, there's a high chance that it's a NAS issue instead - possibly the SATA adapter/slot is failing thus causing the disk to be disconnected/un-initialised whenever it goes to hibernation mode. That would explain why you can repair the SP & the SMART tests all come back OK.

I just tested it and you are right, its a NAS issue. The same slot is failing.

Is your ds418play connected to router/switch on the same network as your desktop/laptop?

Depends on the HDD configuration you are going for. I compared 6tb x3 with the NAS still cheaper than stacking coupon and CC rebates from lazada paying cash.
