Even more disappointed since I was really expecting an Ironwolf NAS drive. Also, things get trickier for me cause I just realised there's no way I can migrate my data into just 1TB of storage (guess I'll have to sort out some files just for the review sake). On top of that, thanks to lockdown, can't even order new drives online anytime soon eitherRecieved mine too.
It's a 1TB Seagate Barracuda HDD. Slightly disappointed that it is a normal HDD not a NAS specialized drive like the Ironwolf. Curse you, Chiaminers.
Oh well, for the review it will do.
P.S. - After the HDD prices and availability becomes normal, I would have to buy a a higher capacity HDD for the NAS, as currently I have 2TB*2 external HDDs worth of data.
Check your email, you should have got email from digit official team with pic of package tracking info.Yeah, not having wi-fi on the NAS unit is an issue. Wi-fi is fairly common these days and most household routers actually have faster wi-fi than ethernet, at least here in India. My router has 100 mbps ethernet ports, but provides 433 mbps over wi-fi 5 Ghz.
BTW, still haven't received my hard drive(s).
Check using crystaldiskinfo free tool. Post screenshot of its values screen.
For those thinking power is an issue, it was not. Used Seatools from Seagate to check the drive and the short generic test failed whereas the long generic test passed.The sata to USB is for 2.5" drives. I know that, but the drive is not being recognised by the NAS too and that's the main issue
It is usually the opposite for most people, try hdd in nas now. Sometimes doing a full format by manufacturer utility may reset some faulty S.M.A.R.T. parameters making it "appear" healthy again.For those thinking power is an issue, it was not.
