WHS2011 running on Dell SFF OptiPlex GX620
One Rosewill PCI 3114 connected to 4 Rosewill SATA docks
One Rosewill PCIe 3132 connected to Mediasonic HF2-SU3S2 Probox 4
3 of my drives just went past 300K Load Cycle Count , frankly I had never even heard of the head parking issue until now and I've just finished a search on these forums and haven't gone out onto the wider internet yet to do more research. The WD30EZRX Greens are in service 347 days and located in the Probox 4. The third is an older 2TB Green in a Rosewill SATA dock connected to the 3114 adapter. All have only been connected to this setup.
Is there some way to minimize the Load Cycle Count?
Is there some default in the SATA controller or Probox 4/Rosewill docks that is causing the count to be high in such a short period of time?
All data is duplicated via DrivePool, they will probably be under warranty when they go over 600k at this rate - can I wait until an individual unit fails?
Thanks in advance for any advice
