Bought a cheap WD 4TB External drive last week and been prepping it to take over from the current 3Tb drive after it started to get some issues “reallocating 124 blocks!”
After a few online rsyncs and 2 final offline rsyncs I see the amount of damage those blocks have caused! 5 shards are unreadable from my node!
rsync: read errors mapping "/node/storage/blobs/v4weeab67sbgvnbwd5z7tweqsqqun7qox2agpbxy44mqqaaaaaaa/dj/nkenrkuxmzl7upu7kzctkwvhhwxk6px3t7jyxfgo6c6i5mlmtq.sj1": Input/output error (5)

Lucky it’s only 5 lost shards rather than a full node!
SO P.S.A. time :
Do your monthly housekeeping on your drive!
Don’t ignore your drives S.M.A.R.T. info!
