I've been using the convoy XL for 2.5" drives for 2 weeks now with 2 brand new 500GB Seagate Momentus 5400 RPM SATA drives. It seems to be working fine, except that I keep getting warnings in my system tray about SMART reports coming from the array (which is in RAID 1 'safe' mode). Attached is a screenshot of the report.
I am using a ESATA to SATA+POWER cable in Windows 7 Professional on a Dell XPS 16 laptop with i7 processor and 8GB RAM with all available Windows 7 updates installed. I have 279GB free out of 500GB at the moment and the drive is not fragmented at all.
I guess my question is: what do these SMART errors mean? Maybe someone on the Patriot tech support team could tell me if these errors are coming from their hardware or just being passed along. Is there any kind of diagnostic I can run that came with the enclosure to help me isolate the problem? Anyone else have this problem?
