Back to topic:

Badblocks on the WD Green AV HD has reached 13.60% completion with (0/0/0
errors) in 15:59:30. :-(

Yes, it is very slow to run.

Less than 1%/hour, apparently.
That's a 2T drive, isn't it?

${DEITY} help us when we have to check out the half dozen or so 4T drives for a
RAID array!

I'm back to thinking that a RAID array, a HIGHLY redundant, HIGHLY striped, full
64-bit wide+Hamming dual error detection, (72,64) of smaller drives, say 350G,
might make more sense. What? Failure rates? Oh, right, yes.

Now THIS is interesting
There seem to be some reliable 4T drives out there and the trend
with 8T is looking good. Still, a RAID6 with 8T drives is a bit
large for a home setting :-)

I have a colleague/developer whose home system is set up to run continuous
backup of him /home-equivalent (he's a Windows user and I'm not sure what the
terminology is) to a USB portable drive-of-notable-size for each of his
machines. He told me once that the 'backup' drives were less reliable than his
main drive!

I found that ironic. He couldn't understand why I was laughing.
