I have installted the Beta of the scanner and it just went crazy! I remember that I have installed it before and removed it for that reason. Take a look at the screenshot. It reports sector errors for a couple of hard drives and DrivePool starts to evacuate the drives. The previous version did not report any errors even after multiple scans. I don't know what is going on, but I need to remove the beta to keep the system save.
PS: As you can see the "damaged" drives are connected to a RAID controller, but are configured as single disks. One of the connected drives does not seem to be affected. I also did a fresh reinstallation of the Scanner Beta, but it did not change. Scanner is still seen damaged sectors and while scanning on drive (see screenshot) and doing this very, very slowly, the number of unreadable sectors increases.
I'm not sure why it would be doing that. But clearly, it's erroring out during the surface scan. My guess is that the way it's reading it must have changed and isn't compatible with the RAID controller.
It's a 3Ware 9650 card, correct?
To clarify, this is only happening to drives on the RAID controller, correct?
And only happening to some of the disks? If so, could you right click on one of the disks and run a "burst test" and see if that completes fine.
And do you know specifically what build this started with?
I hate to ask, but if you could isolate which build this started with, that would greatly help to identify what is causing the issue.
