    I did call an agent there a couple of days ago, and he wanted to be helpful, but this issue was all new to him.

    The root cause of the issue has yet to be uncovered. I have wondered if this is an issue with SMR (shingled) drives (as well as SSDs), but don't know enough to know if most of the affected drives are SMRs; it had been recommended earlier to stay away from SMR drives, due to compatibility issues. Separately, no issue reported here with the often-recommended Toshiba 2.5" 3TB drive.

    There should be a thread about this hard drive issue.

    Plenty of threads in the Bolt forum about failures.
