WD 16TB My Book Duo fails

Using RAID 1:

First it said Drive 2: Failed, so I used “Rebuild”, after some time it successfully finished. Now it says Drive 1: Failed but Drive 2 is ok?

Is my enclosure failing? Or are both drives being flaky?

I can still access my data. Status is “Degraded”

I have access to a 2nd WD 16TB My Book Duo, I suppose I could move both these drives into that one and see how they perform?


Hi @Astr0Cat,

We would suggest you to install WD Drive Utility and run the test In order to understand the health of the drive.
