    I sincerely hope that's a typo.

    Um bit of a misunderstanding here. The 5TB Reds were raid 1 in a 2 bay Synology NAS originally. One died ages ago and I moved the other to my main rig as general storage, so not raided.

    In my main 4bay NAS I run Synology Hybrid Raid as it's easy to deal with if things go south and in the Xpenology Test NAS Ihave raid 5.

    OMG! That nearly made me wet myself. Sorry that should have said rusty disk storage but I think i'll leave it just for the lolz.

It was long fixed by the time Hitachi took them over, and as Hitachi drives they were pure awesome.

    You are absolutely correct, my memory is not what it once was, apologies.

    Ahh, I thought you had been using the Reds in RAID..

    I'm more disappointed in myself for missing the rusty dick line tbh..
