Software Utilities

Post by W0lf_hdc74ngi »

Are there any software utilities to keep tabs on the box other than "Red LED means Bad"? Integrity checks, auto firmware updates (or at least notifications), rebuild status, etc.

I'd love to see software tools also.

Are your drives constantly spinning? I have two Seagate 1TB drives in Raid Mirroring and they REFUSE to spin-down.

I find sentinel to be really useful even just the free version, but I notice this software does not work for HUR5-SU3 2x4TB HGST MegaScale DC 4000.B single mode. It lists the two drives but just has a question mark next to both drives, and no info other then size is listed. fyi
