I have had the P1 R6 running great for a couple of years. Drive 4 turned red...with an error indication saying drive marked dead due to removal. I remounted the drive and it was able to be rebuilt and was good for a day or so. Then it was marked dead again. Ok so I got two new approved drives for backup. I swapped out Drive 4 and rebuilt assuming the original drive truly dead. Worked fine for a week and then the same marked dead due to removal error. Tried a third replacement and same result.

Anyone have similar issues out there and discovered a solution?

Running mac OS 10.12.3 and latest Pegasus drivers and firmware installed
