my unit only has 1 internal drive an upgraded WD AV GP WD20eurs. it did not throw any errors on the kickstart 54 test and when it finished the off-line scan test just said done, with every other test as ok. The amount of time the off-line scan took is what is concerning to me. I don't believe it should take 32hours to finish on that drive.
well, after doing some reading it seems that the test can run 1gb per hour so for a 2tb drive perhaps 32hours is not that uncommon on the off-line scan test of kickstart 54. anyone with a 2tb wdeurs drive notice how long the off-line scan took? Doing some googling I found one guy who said his test took about 30 hours on his 2tb drive and he was suspicious of the time as well.
Long/Extended[edit source | editbeta]A longer and more thorough version of the short self-test, scans the entire disk surface, with no time limit. (Hundreds of minutes, approximately one gigabyte per minute for modern drives.)
