Re: Format & Quick format

Subject: Re: Format & Quick format

I've had endless problems with new HDDs on my A1XE.

Since I got my X5000, I have installed a new SSD and HDD, and transferred one of my HDDs from the A1XE, and only the latter has given any problems (and I'm not entirely sure that it's not doing what its supposed to...)

Here are a couple of things I have learned / been told that haven't been covered here so far:

1. Never do a full Format on an SSD. It will kill it.
2. Most modern drives are rated 6 GB/s but have a jumper to set 3 GB/s. I have been told to set this jumper.
3. Don't use all the drive, leave some space (a few GB?) at the end.

and has already been mentioned...

0. Check your cables. ;)
