@wolf480pl it was indeed a 970evo 2TB (the one under the Hammer :-) . The one pictured is the replacement, a 970evo plus 2TB. That said, I worked that drive hard for 2 years, it powers a 32GB RAM Server with 7 VMs running 24/7 with pretty much everything I host. Mail Server, Nextcloud, Mastodon, many more things. The drive was 70% full and still worked when cooled AND copies were artificially slowed down to <200MB/s.
@emanuel damn, I was hoping a couple of 970 Evos in RAID 1 would last me 5 years without a replacement, but looks like that may not be the case...
Were you still on warranty / terabytes written below the rated TBW endurance?
@wolf480pl oh I forgot. It returned critical sector read errors hmm 1 for every 20GB, usually only on very large files.
