Scanner refuses to stop and is taking 24+ hours on one drive.


Question

I have new drives (two 8tb reds + 4 2tb red pros)  and so far the scanner is green on everything. EXCEPT 1 drive is all blue.  Apparently that means " This block was scanned as part of an ongoing disk surface scan."  What exactly does that mean? Also, scanner will not stop scanning this drive and has taken over 24 hours to get to 85%.  Should I be concerned?

Well the blue blocks means that it's actively being scanned, basically.  And was scanned as part of the current disk scan pass.  (eg, part of the current job/task)

As for time, that depends on the drive.  It should take roughly 4 hours per TB to complete.  And longer if the disk is busy, overheating or having issues. 

For an 8TB drive, that's 32 hours.  So, in "real world usage" that may be 48 or more hours (2 days).  For the 2TB drives, that's 8-12 hours each, or longer. 

So, it really looks like the time for the scans is pretty normal. 

As for "refusing to stop", how so?

Telling Scanner to stop/quit the scan would not work. It just kept going.  It finished this morning and all the blocks returned to grey.  I started a new scan of everything and the few drives I looked at, before I left for work, were turning green as it scanned.  I'll be curious to see how it reacts once it gets back to the drive in question.
