how to test a Hard Drive ?

  • Hi,


    Well, i was with a RAID, it failed , with help, i deleted it, and made a merge FS ... all was ok until i copy data back on it ... and then, the merge FS failed :/


    So, i think i have a HDD who's diying but i can't find it... I got another volume (for downloads with transmission), i'd like to keep it, it's only 1 disk ..


    I saw the S.M.A.R.T. but all is green and i don't understand detailled infos ...


    1 HDD (my only 6 To) is still on garanty, i have to be sure if it's the problem


    Thanks for the help, i'm going crazy with thoses HDD ... (and again ... sry for my bad english and my noobish attitude)

  • Look at the Information | Attributes table. If Attributes 5, 197, and 198 have any non-zero Raw Values, it's a sign that the drive might be failing.

  • I provided things to look at in SMART which related to the hardware, not the file systems.


    You will need to provide more information such as what errors you are seeing and whether or not you have run a check on the file systems and what that showed.
