8TB WD Easystores

Posted on

I picked up two additional WD easystores from Bestbuy on the fourth when they went on sale for 130$

I started with some scans using Hard Drive Sentinel Professional, so I could scan both disks at once;

Both drives completed with 100% health after around 15 hours.

I decided to shuck the drives since I confirmed they had healthy WD Red Nas drives in them.

Removed all the inteneral to leave just the drive.

Installed the drives into the supermicro caddies;

Because I didn’t want to wipe my existing raid array, I had to just expand my volume, which is fine for the time being since I don’t have all my disks anyways. (6 more to go).
