Does DroboPro have some type of internal memory that records the SN of drives that are reported failed?
How does the DroboPro determine that these hard drives actually failed? Is it based on one incident of failure are repeated testing of that drive once its reinserted?
A few of the drives DroboPro reported has failed works perfectly inside of my computer (tested with large amounts of data/SMART is verified/no issues). I have my workstation connected to a UPS and had a report of a outage today, DroboPro then reported one drive was failed. I backed up all data on the DroboPro and did a reset… now everything is fine. It’s not reporting a bad drive.
I just want to know that these drives are indeed really Kaput before I go through the hassle of sending them back to WD. One drive that was reported failed has been working in the DroboPro for months now with no issues.
