  1. Hi, I'm about to buy 2 new HDDs for my 2-bay enclosure to be used in raid 1. I'm inclined to buy the Seagate Archive 8TB (220 Euro per drive) due to the excellent price/capacity ratio but I wonder if it's the right drive for me. Are these Seagate Archive 8TB drives suitable for 24/7 operation (in Raid-1) acting as a iTunes music server using only lossless files (.aiff)? The work load for these drives will be very low, in general I listen to music about 30 minutes per day average, and I will add 1 or 2 GB of new music files per week to these drives. These new drives will replace 2 WD Red 4TB drives that performed quite well with low noise. And in case one drive fails will the rebuild process in my case take exceptionally long due to the SMR technology used in these Seagate Archive drives or does that apply more to more complex Raid setups?
