Hi, I have a venerable old Pegusus R6 that has been performing well for many years. It is well out of warranty. Recently the HD in Bay 6 failed and reported DEAD. Not to worry, these things happen. Replaced with brand new Western Digital NAS HD (6TB), rebuild Volume no problems.
After about 61 hrs of operation the new HD in Bay 6 failed and reported DEAD. Hmmmm, new drive failed after only 61 hrs of operation possible but unlikely. Anyway, replaced the newly DEAD HD in Bay 6 with another brand new WD NAS HD (6 TB), rebuilt Volume with no problems. However, again, after only 80 hrs of operation the new 6TB WD HD failed again in Bay 6 and was reported as being DEAD.
Unlikely to be a problem with two brand new HDs.
Has anyone experienced a similar problem and, if so, is their a known fix. Only alternative is to toss R6 enclosure, and this would be a sad outcome.
