I started a System Diagnostics Full Test on my 4TB MyCloud (1/4 full) and in about 8 hours it progressed to 90%. After another 8 hours or so, it was still at 90% and then I had a power failure in the house. The next day I started a Quick Test, and after perhaps only 1 hour it had progressed to 90%. 10 hours later, it’s still at 90%. I’m not impressed with the WD software. This is on a new (warranty replacement) drive that I’ve just set up. The WD webpage (http://support.wdc.com/KnowledgeBase/answer.aspx?ID=10427) suggests that when this completes, I only get a message “Self Test Passed.” (I’ve also checked out Stuck after Full Test :(. Curious responses.). It seems to me that when (if) the Full Test completes, I ought to get a report about the number of bad sectors that have been found, at a minimum.
PS: the replacement drive is performing MUCH BETTER than the original drive it has replaced (yes I had the latest firmware on each box)…
PPS: the subject is of course a reference to Charlie on the MTA song popular in the 60’s, but EVERYBODY already knew that.
(I’ve noticed that there really is no question in this post for which I need an answer. I’m just whining (whinging if you’re in the UK))
