Question

I am getting the below message on my 4 bay xpenology server. My question is how can I determine which drive is starting to fail  since it just says disk 7?

 

The hard disk 7 on DS918_PLUS had an I/O error, but it is working properly now after several retries. It might have been caused by bad sectors. If this error occurs again, please back up your data and run the S.M.A.R.T. test on your hard drive to examine the hard drive status.

check the serial numbers of the drives as shown in Storage Manager and then have a look at the labels on the drives in the box to match up.

I usually label by sata leads with the DSM drive numbers for diagnosing problems like this
