My second disk also got bad sector. is it due to JMicron SATA controller?

Unread post by Ramesh Chandra » Mon Mar 11, 2019 2:06 pm

Hi,

My first hard disk got bad sectors and click sound after using it on HC1 for 1 month. Then I send it for replacement and get another brand New harddisk. Now the second hard disk also got some bad sector and same click sound. I have doubt on the JMicron SATA to USB controller used in HC1 for currupting my hard disks
Is my doubt is correct? Did anyone also face the same issue?

We've shipped over 20K of HC1/HC2 units and we've not seen many bad sector issues so far.
Do you use an encrypted file system? or pure EXT4?

I am using EXT4 file system over an encrypted disk.
For me, it doesn't make sense to leave all your data in unencrypted disk and wait for someone to use it.

I see.
Can you give me a guide or link to learn how to build a encrypted disk to reproduce the issue?
We have near zero experience of encrypted storage.

I am using openmediavault-luksencryption to encrypt my disk.

Hi.

Sorry, we have not tested yet.

We tried using openmediavault-luksencryption 3.0.5 plugin on OMV 4.1.19-1. Installed that from OMV - Plugins menu.
But we couldn't start the test since it couldn't find the disk that is installed. Maybe it is because we're not familiar with that plugin.

Could you tell us how you set up your OMV environment? Then we're going to test as soon as you tell.
