    External hard drive
    SansDigital dual enclosure RAID 0

    Was having some stuttering so ran hard drive diagnosis from start-up menu.

    SMART LONG AND SHORT TEST
    ERROR 3012.

    No problems on the SanDigital.

    Box seems to work fine now.

    Anyone know that error code?
    Should I replace?

    Thanks.

    Well, with the external, the internal drive really isn't used. And if you replace, any recordings on the external won't be playable.

    I would also seriously reconsider using RAID 0. There is no benefit, only increased risk (unless you really mean RAID 1.) Some call the increased risk of RAID 0 a myth, I personally disagree with that. But there is really no benefit with a DVR.

    Sorry, I meant RAID 1.
    And the errors are on the external drive.

    Got it. If you can determine which drive has the issues, I would certainly replace that drive. Myself, I'd probably run Spinrite on it, but I already own a copy.

    Smart error codes only go from 01 to 254. Also, since you're using a raid enclosure your not actually testing individual drives, you're checking an array. To check the drives you'd need to test them individually.
