What hdd u using? Why will it keep crashing?

I m assuming you might have the same challenge i have previously which is a NAS issue over HDD. Synology insisted was HDD and i kept swapping. Waste time. In the end a change of NAS resolved everything.

Show your hdd smart health easier.

Been using the following each for 2 - 3 years straight with very low issues

HGST 4TB (about 3 drives)
Seagate NAS 4TB (about 8 drives

now

Seagate Ironwolf Pro 10TB (about 13 drives)

I did have issues with a WDC Red drive only had one of those, some IO issues now I stopped using them.


I found this :

Toshiba MG06ACA800E 8TB 3.5-In 7200 RPM Enterprise Hard Disk Drive


Selling : $337.05 (Excluding delivery)


Can't really find much info on this drive but based on specs, looks good.

Anybody here use this drives?

no because you are still being limited by the 1Gbps throughput.

Currently, all the hard drives in my PC are WD Black. One of them reaching 5yrs and no problem. The other 2 are about 3yrs+.

Synology Nas Permissions

I have issues with Synology Nas recently have
“Everyone” and “root” with “Read” permissions added. Am unable to remove or amend these permissions as they are “greyed out”.



How to fix this ?

Hrmm I guess hard to assess though, unless they also run 24x7 in a multi drive array. Cause have to account for vibrations, and heat etc and usage etc for a better comparison in a NAS environment.

Agree. I have been using toshiba disks for a long time.

Have my own fair share of other drives too

But settle with Toshibas because they are the most value for money. 7200rpm but little warranty (except for my other ent grade toshibas, 5 years)

I reckon the Japanese manufacturers create a better balanced product overall with higher tolerances compared the western brands like Seagate/WD. My regular HGST been running smoothly as well with no issues.

I had a friend who family biz where component manufacturers for one of the above western brands. He commented once that one of them were skimping off the lower series of drive by not applying some coating which would increase longevity of the drives, came down to fractions of a cent per drive in savings. Was probably also to push consumers to their higher end drives.

I don't feel any difference in speed for backup, personally using ds1511+.
I deployed a few new models for my project as backup + VPN as well.
