Constant Drive Activity

Post by autolux » Tue Jul 24, 2018 1:50 pm

I have a TS-453B with 4x 8TB HGST DeskStar 7200 NAS drives.

They are constantly seeking or doing something. Even with nothing accessing the NAS, theres always some noise going on..

I read the thread here: viewtopic.php?t=131537

about having to disable background media scanning.. but tbh im not sure how to action any changes.

whatdo i need to do to get some normal behaviour on these drives?

in addition, theres a lotta data on them, so do i need to get rid of it and start again?
