  1. Can someone help me with what is acceptable amount of Current Pending and Uncorrectable sectors. 8TB Seagate Archive drive one with 3288 sectors in Current and Unrecoverable and another with 322 sectors.
  2. I have a USB3 4 Bay older Orico external bay works no issues but new once NS800U3 lists drives under name as JMicron Generic DISK0X USB Device each one starting at DISK00 to DISK07. All the smart Data seems fine including drive model number. Scanner V2.5.1.3062. I realise you can rename them manually but would be good if you could look into this. Also if it interests anyone The enclosure runs a lot hotter after 30 min or minimal activity I get temp alerts. Temperature runs at 46 Deg C compared to 37 Deg C compared to older enclosure for same model 8TB Seagate drive, I bumped the alerts
  3. Thanks I've worked out out now, I used it when it was Google apps and the pricing structure was a bit different. It actually simpler now. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  4. Yeah I can see a lot of refugees from ACD heading straight to gsuite and suddenly Google will start enforcing terms of service. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  5. If you get the 5 accounts for $50 a year each can't you just pay $10 per month for one account unlimited data or does that cost go on each account? Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  6. Wouldn't Google drive be a better option or do you think the business accounts will stop offering unlimited? Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  7. Well Amazon have killed unlimited now, I wonder if others will follow. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk Well Amazon have killed unlimited now wonder if others will follow. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  8. Yeah I take your point you have to find 4 people who trust me or I trust and yeah as I don't run a business anymore and have lifetime chronic illness I don't have many real life friends and none interested in this. So if you did get 5 users at $50 x5 you could have the unlimited option. Would just $10 on one account and have multiple drives or would each user have to pay $10 per month using Google drive drive. Would be a no brainer before I had to stop work at 33 years old and eventually shut down my business. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  9. Why would Google close an account sold on eBay, oh did a Google search that's risky buying University and business accounts that the organisation and Google can shut down. I hope no one here did that as you will be on borrowed time. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  10. My understanding to get unlimited account for Google drive option is only available to G Suite which requires a minimum of 5 paid accounts at $50 a year. You then have an option of $10 per month for unlimited drive space. Given this I'm happy to supply a domain if I can get 4 or 5 other people to share expense of a 5 account would 30+ TB and grow over time be reasonable use or does Google truely supply unlimited storage? Is Google drive very reliable? Can you have more than one drive per email account? Are there any other people here interested in joining up to share costs? Anyone se

  13. Christopher I recently had to try and find a drive with problems and was in format \Device\HarddiskVolume it was a lot of messing around using diskpart then I had to add drive letters to find out the drive eventually. Can you add a column in Scanner that shows either the Label so you don't have to allocate a drive letter to every drive or can you get info for \Device\HarddiskVolume into scanner column. Currently it is not intuitive and difficult to find the drive with problems with Scanner from the event log. I had messages like Volume \\?\Volume{2f02bdf1-0fa7-4adf-9bfd-2b630bfc0e39}
  14. Fredrick, they are a very talented and smart group of programmers the problem seems that in summary that Amazon drive are isolated from the excellent Amazon S3 team and they keep Channing the rules. I think their idea of unlimited is different to ours. I don't believe the concept was well thought out and the team is not up to the task at Amazon drive. All other Amazon services I have touched are well recorded and professional. That's not what I see with the drive term. Find give friends and share a Google apps account and the unlimited data add-on. That's what I would do if I had 5 people who
  15. I think it's clear it's not reliable, have you read all the posts. Amazon's are not interested or helpful as far as I could read and even Plex dropped support Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  16. Our TV is both MPEG2 and H264 as I understand it only the newest WTV container supports H264. I found someone today in Australia who is working on trying to get more reliable Guide Data so Will stick with Plex for a while, that has been enough of a learning curve. What is driving me crazy is thetvdb.com going down for the last month everytime I want to add new media. I would prefer not to even own a media computer but streaming services are still inadequate. Plex just fixed the Cricket EPG issue or Gracenote but Plex are claiming the win. It looks like Gracenote is using inadequate guide data
  17. Great both of those are out of stock. Your recommending eSata over USB3? Is USB3 useful or are the no SMART data a USB3 Feature or have I had bad luck? Thanks for that fast response.
  18. Thanks Christopher I spent a lot of time in last two months with Plex and brought a Plex pass but the EPG is not great yet! Doesn't support my regiion in Australia but I found a 95% accurate version but then sport like Cricket that is in 3 sessions in a day the guide will only recognise one session. I assume Emby only supports HD Homerun and not all the BDA PCI tuners I have either? I wonder where they get their guide data from Plex uses Gracenote. Just trying to get away from Windows Media Center and plex gave promise of using things like Android and Apple TV but our recordings are in MPEG in
  19. For drivepool want more storage. I have in my Windows 8.1 Windows Media Sever / Plex 1 x SSD 1 x Blu-ray 4 x 6TB WD Red 3 x 8TB Seagate Archive 1 x 3 TB Hitachi http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z77%20Extreme6/ 1 x Asmedia 1061 Controler Card 3 x Tuner Cards I need more storage SATA drives. I have spare random ones and plan to buy some more WD Reds What is good for external that will work reliably With DrivePool and Scanner. I have had no luck with Scanner and External USB and getting any SMART and even tried Advanced settings in Scanner but had computer lock up. Cheap t
  20. WMC says loss of signal or error. I've had the drive over 2 years and had intermittent issues I could never pin down. Sometimes a new power supply would fix reliability but I suspect this was main issue but time will tell. With the TV stations here selling of over half the spectrum for 4G services they re stacked the channels on less spectrum so we get lots of co channel interference and that was happening too and same symptoms. Living in rural Australia TV has always been an issue. Computer times never work as well as the ones in the TVs although I just brought a network tuner HD home run see
  21. Out of warrant by 2 months. Turns out removing drive even though not used for direct recording has stopped a lot of pixelation in recordings I put down to reception problems. Event log says this has been going on for over 6 months but I had done a fresh install back then. I was even getting no signal. I then checked the event log with dates any times of lots of signal recording errors and found most occurred at the same time was the event log being flooded with this drive.

  22. Thanks very much, as always superior support. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  23. How can you RMA a drive that tests ok. They want to see a fault with seatools do they still have to take it back if tests ok? Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  24. Netflix store once and use a lot of bandwidth, this scenario is same bandwidth and if encrypted storing a copy for everyone well am oversimplification. Unless storage gets to be a lot cheaper unlimited is not going to make money. How they ever thought Plex DVR support was a good idea amazed me. This has damaged the Amazon storage name. There are angry Plex users, unmitigated disaster for everyone involved. Whoever is running that Amazon cloud drive circus needs the boot and roll it into Amazon S3 or just kill it. Clearly they can't even take a basic users idea of unlimited. What the hell did t
  25. Electrician despite warning him to notify me pulled the plug on My Windows Media Center. Since then Get event ID 153 The IO operation at logical block address 0x5e8a40 for Disk 7 (PDO name: \Device\00000038) was retried When Disk 7 is accessed (main Recorded TV Drive) computer was locking and at times scanner would stop updating. You couldn't even shutdown the scanner service it was all locked up. I forced scan on the drive in scanner and the event logs kept coming. No errors show on scanner for the drive and the SMART data is perfect. 4TB Seagate drive. Asmedia PCI 1061 c
