diskcrashThis is the 3rd time a disk has crashed on Volume 1 of my Synology CS-407 NAS Server. I am wondering if it’s the Synology or just a faulty disk. This is the 2nd brand new disk to have gone into the NAS in many weeks. Just this last weekend I prepared the disks in the NAS, which took hours. By preparing the disk I mean running some software called DISKWIPE that writes #’s to the disk to clear it.

So far in all the disk setups (RAID0, RAID1, RAID5 and BASIC) it’s has always been Volume 1 – Disk 1 that has failed. Typically this is the disk that contains all my video, music and photos. 🙁 Thanks goodness for backups
