Running 4TB on rock64 4GB (Raspberry Pi clone)
I am doing ok I guess since April 2019, when I started my node on V3. My only problem is that my node crashes from time to time and then I just press the reset button on my rock64, the node restarts, and everything is back to normal.
I have been experimenting with implementing an external Arduino based restarting system. It should hijack the reset button to restart the node automatically when it crashes. I have yet to figure out the technical details, but today, during experimentation, I accidentally short-circuited my 12V power supply. 12V goes directly to the hard drive and through a 5V DC-DC step-down converter to my rock64.
As a consequence, I heard a chilling sound from the hard drive and from the 120W power supply. I checked the dashboard and after a restart, it showed 3.0TB of space available, and 507GB used.
After another restart, I was at 1.4TB available and 2.1TB used, that being the normal, expected value and the node seems to be running ok now for 20 minutes.
Should I worry? What happened? Has anyone had a similar experience?
