  1. Hi, I have a Qnap ts231 NAS and have a Black 4TB and a Red 4tb in it as two separate drives. Yesterday got a message Raid 1 was not working. Looked and saw my Red was not detected.. Tested in another computer and it was dead. No vibration, no sound, dead! Took it back to the store and they swapped it for a new one. He said he had more Black returns in past. Doing a WD diag test on it now. Quick test is fine and now halfway thru extended. Drive had about 1.5TB data..gone.. This was my backup.
  2. I have bought a Seagate Backup Plus Fast 4TB: It is a fantastic drive. What I was looking for was something portable that could be driven by a single USB port without additional power. The drive came configured as a 4TB humongous MBR disk formatted with NTFS, with 4k sectors. I had to undo this configuration to accommodate my needs (1.5TB HFS+ partition for Time machine backups and a 2.5TB NTFS partition working as a Mac/Windows shared drive. For this I have configured it as a GUID disk. I am wondering: How do they configure this huge disk as MBR with a single 4TB partition? Can this be done with tools like Parted Magic? I did not have the time to test this but am still curious. Thanks.

    Which 4tb Drive?

    Looking for a new 4tb drive to use within HP Microserver. It will be used for storage of media(movies, apps,pics, docs) and remotely accessed across a network. It will NOT be in a raid setup. Usage will mainly be for movie viewing and photo viewing from laptop/ipad/media player. Max users at one time would be 2 but majority of time single usage. Server uptime runs on a calender schedule, and is up daily from 6pm to 2am midweek, and powered on all day/night at the weekend. Choices I have are the WD red or Green or the Seagate Barracude 14 ST4000DM000. The WD drives comes with 3 yr warranty for the red and 2 yrs warranty for the green. Both can have warranty extended by a year for extra £6 from WD. I hear they are issues with warranty for WD? And Barracuda's generally fail jjust after 2yrs? Very confusing. So should i go for the Western digitals due to the extra warranty or go for the cheaper Barracuda or blow the budget on a Hitachi?? Or is there another drive that is good for reliability/performance/cost ratio Hitachi 4tb Approx £150 WD Red with 4yr warranty, best price £142 WD Green with 3yr Warranty, best price £117 Barracuda ST4000DM000 (2yr Warranty) £116
