Does your raid go offline or keep rebuilding?
#1
I have seen a lot of posts here with this problem...  Though a lot of people want to blame it on the NAS device, it more than likely is due to your hard drives in your NAS.  Due to the way RAID works it checks it self...  In doing that the cheaper drives that don't have error correction/error recovery built into the drive itself it basically tells the NAS that the drive is bad and can bring your RAID down.  I have seen this a zillion times with customers who have desktop PC's and use the on board RAID option that their motherboard provides.  This is a very simplified explanation of why your RAID keeps going down, but hopefully helps others here.

Can it work with cheaper drives, sure.  Are you going to have problems more often, YES.

If you are tired of rebuilding your arrays all the time look into the following drives below.

Western Digital Red Drives
Seagate IronWolf Drives
Seagate NAS Drives


Take care.

I don't agree. I have 2 Seagate IronWolfs and a WD Red drive in my N4310 and it just randomly went into recovery today. After a few hours into recovery, the recovery restarted and is still going.

Read your text file, thanks for the helpful information. All my drives are NAS drives and they keep on rebuilding. All of my drives are healthy. I don’t understand why this is happening. I have logged a support request and am waiting for a response.
