Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Storage space if I could use it.

Cons: Bought two drives, both complained of GPT corruption/damage. Was unable to have any partition table persist through a reboot. One drive started at 1.87TB then showed the full 2.73TB. After moving it to my server for LVM integration, the disk was back at 1.87TB and partion table gone.

Second drive:
GPT fdisk (gdisk) version 0.8.5

Caution: invalid backup GPT header, but valid main header; regenerating
backup header from main header.

Partition table scan:
MBR: MBR only
BSD: not present
APM: not present
GPT: damaged

Found valid MBR and corrupt GPT. Which do you want to use? (Using the
GPT MAY permit recovery of GPT data.)
1 - MBR
2 - GPT
3 - Create blank GPT

(parted) print
Warning: /dev/sda contains GPT signatures, indicating that it has a GPT table.
However, it does not have a valid fake msdos partition table, as it should.
Perhaps it was corrupted -- possibly by a program that doesn't understand GPT
partition tables. Or perhaps you deleted the GPT table, and are now using an
msdos partition table. Is this a GPT partition table?
Yes/No? yes
Error: The backup GPT table is corrupt, but the primary appears OK, so that will
be used.
OK/Cancel? ok
Model: ATA ST3000DM001-1CH1 (scsi)

Warning: The existing disk label on /dev/sda will be destroyed and all data on
this disk will be lost. Do you want to continue?
Yes/No? yes

Above is from GParted Live disk.

Other Thoughts: First time I've ever had trouble with a disk from New Egg. Will try the RMA replacements and hope for stability.

Disk setup done from gparted-live-0.16.1-1-i486.iso

Server already has a WD Red 3TB disk so it is not related to the motherboard or SATA chipsets.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Huge drive, runs cool

Cons: Make sure you GPT this before entering it into any LVM configuration or you will waste some space and probably lose data
