Many thanks Dave for all the suggestions!!!
To be honest I think the drives are fine but the system is just soooo
old including the IDE drives.
I mean if I get a SATA/IDE USB adapter I should be able to backup the
drives to the new DAS system I will have in place shortly since I am
much more in favor of running Nexenta Core 3 OS with ZFS spanning the
16x drives meaning a total of 36TB with 2 internal drives used for
logging and caching.
Then this system will be obsolete. However, I will keep your suggestion
of using *spinwrite* in mind next time I encounter issues!
BTW I respect your H/W knowledge that's quite in deep :-) thank you for
<just an observation demon.co.uk :-) used to be my old ISP til I went
with Pipex which is now bust, then I moved out of the UK and now
everything is roasting hot>
