Safe to do disk parity check for passthrough disks on VM?

Recommended Posts



I got a new disk I passed-through to the DSM VM running on KVM. When initializing the new disk DSM is offering me to check the health/parity (searching for bad sectors) of the disk.


Is it safe to let DSM do that as it does not really have direct access to the real physical drive?

Would it be better to fsck the disk on the Linux host?
