Ordered the Elements.. basically $110 plus tax!

I'll report back on the contents.

I can still use the $10 Bestbuy GC for something else.

Depend on the Seagate drive

shingled magnetic recording (SMR) was only in some USB and Drives that lable as Archive HDD there meant for long team storage only as in write once.

two-dimensional magnetic recording (TDMR) is found in the Barracudas and Ironwolves and other line under 12TB

heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) 12TB and higher

 

This is true (TDMR,HAMR) for the pro and enterprise models. But their higher capacity desktop and external models that run at lower RPMs, including Barracuda, have been using SMR. It's getting harder to find Seagate docs with this info and they've shifted to stating TGMR as the recording tech. If you find older datasheets for the same models they do include mention of SMR.

Unless there a reason for high speed 7200rpm drive which mainly games loading there really need even a stock 5400rpm drive can easy push 16 HD steam of 8mb/sec at ocen.

 

It not hard if no where to look see page 6

As long time seagate user all way to 80's all one has to do call them and ask and I usually run them for 5 years 24/7 then update them make old one's as backup storage drive in fact I have upgrade to 8TB as I still got a few more to go on emby server

According to CPUID's Hardware monitor the drive inside is a western digital wd8emaz-00wjta0. I still haven't cracked the case.

 

Question, I want to move the contents of four 2Tb drives to this drive but the 2TB drives are in a Pool using DrivePool which Emby's libraries are pointed to. If I take them out of the pool, how will Emby find the contents? I do plan on putting this drive back into the pool when the transfers are complete.

 

Additional note, this pool exists on my old i5 4690k but the contents, once transferred to the 8Tb drive will be in the pool on my new Rizen 3700x. Issues?

Just copy it over and point Emby to the new share. Should be pretty straight forward.

Maybe interesting for people who'd like to see how reliable harddrives are:

Backblaze has been releasing this for years. I work in datacenters and found this to be pretty accurate, closely mirroring what I'm seeing as well...
