Your drives are OK from SMART standpoint;

I would try to measure seek time for all tracks, just to be sure in mechanical parts. Its slowness would case of delay in reading/writing and DVR OS would complain about issues with the HDD.

If I put the drives in a new sans mr2ut will the enclosure format the drives again or will I be able to retain the recorded programs as long as the dvr is the same?

As long as it is the same model it should maintain the array.  Just put it in the correct RAID mode first, via the dial on the back, before inserting the drives.

Good. Then I will pull the sans off of my R34 replace the drives with the ones from the questionable R 22 as both are raid1 configured and both are the same sans enclosers. That will tell me if the problem is with the enclosure or the dvr or perhaps the drives, which is less likely.
Thanks

Ok, installed one new, well actually a factory rebuilt, wd 2tb red almost 24 hours ago and it appears to be still rebuilding. How long is the rebuild time for a 2 tb drive only 25% full?

Only 25% full of what?  You should have been able to use that DVR no more than 15 minutes after installing the external device.

Perhaps we have a procedural issue here. I did not connect the array to the d=
vr yet. I just replaced 1 drive and turned the array back on. Green power li=
t, yellow link lit, Red error lit. Drive 1 purple mostly with momentary blue=
flash, drive 2, the replaced one, purple, red alternating mostly with occas=
ional blue corresponding with drive 1 blue. Do I have to have the array conn=
ected to the dvr in order to rebuild?

Sorry guys, I'm an idiot. I just checked and I did indeed attach the array to the dvr yesterday. Apparently it rebuilt the new drive. However I am showing the red error light on, it was not on before I switched drives. How do I tell which drive it is indicating an error in?

Wish the manual had that info, alas it is rather sketchy in all but drive installation into the box. Nothing on raid problem diagnostics.

Is there an order of some sort to the lights and drives maybe?

Not that the docs disclose. I did call tech support though. They said to ignore the red error light. Apparently it is illuminated when a drive is being rebuilt. The rebuild process takes longer, he said, when the array is connected to the dvr, as it is recording new material and buffering, all while it is trying to rebuild the new drive. He said that the lights on the drive being rebuilt were the ones that would indicate a problem and that mine indicated a rebuild in progress.

what is a courtesy ! :(

 

instead of writing normal helpful manual (is it hard to post it at web site ?!) users must spend time on a phone line and discuss meaning of the lights :(

Does anyone know if the Sans Digital MR2UT+ raid enclosure will support 4TB drives?

OK, I think that I'm ready to add an external HD to my HR21-700 (yes, I know that it is old but I'm not ready yet to jump to an HR44).

I'm looking at a Vantec (NST-380SU3-BK) enclosure and a WD AV-GP 2 TB (WD20EURS) hard drive.

First, after reading several pages of posts here I haven’t found any information that would preclude me from adding this to the HR21 and second, if the internal hard drive on the HR21 is beginning to fail (I’m seeing occasional freezing and stuttering on recorded content) will it affect the use of the external drive if the internal drive fails completely?

Thanks for all of the help.

Dan

If you plan on jumping to a hr44 ( and unless it's price jump now your wasting time for no reason. ;) ) then I wouldn't bother adding an external because you won't be able to watch what you've recorded unless you plan on keeping the HR21 as well.

And if you wanted to add an external
To a hr44 you can go bigger than 2tb
