I/0 Read Disk Error: 091A31A640859580
I connected a brand new OWC ThunderBay with four brand new 4TB HD's in October. I installed SoftRAID 6.2 and am using Mac OSX 12.0.1 (Monterey) and a thunderbolt cable.
Then, after about 1 month, I started getting a Read Disk Error with instructions: "At some time in the past, a SoftRAID disk encountered a read or write error. please launch the SoftRAID application to determine which disk failed to read or write data correctly. This disk should be replaced immediately. Disk with error: disk0, SoftRAID ID: 091A31A640859580".
I launched the SoftRAID app and see that two HD's have I/o errors and am now waiting for the replacement HD's to arrive.
My question, both these drives and the ThunderBay were brand new in October - did they really both die in just over a month of use?
Is the ThunderBay or SOFTRaid really grinding HDs so hard that they should be dying this quickly?
Note, I noticed the lights on the ThunderBay dance all the time nonstop so I'm not ruling out a faulty device and am trying to get some guidance from OWC as well.
Attach a SoftRAID support file. IO errors, do not mean failing disks necessarily, it means there was an error on one or more disks.
