Hi I have an Asustor 604 Nas with 4 WD Red 3TB hard drives  and have a spare WD 3TB green drive.    In the last year 2 drives failed big time and now another looks to be failing.   Smart has Reallocated sector count value 200 worst 200 raw value 1 and State Bad.   Also has Current Pending Sector value 200 Worst 200 raw value 40 and State Bad.
Is it okay to replace it with a green drive.  With 20 odd green drives only ever had 1 fail over the years but most reds have failed.  I know if it really is failing it is under warranty and good luck sending it back to where I bought from. Others that were completely dead were a hassle getting replaced

You'd have to get the wdidle utility (or something like that) to stop the green going to sleep after 6 seconds idle. Mixed drives are fine, not perfect but fine.

Raw value 1 means one sector reallocated, which isn't really a big deal. The 40 pending sounds fishy though.

Thanks, the WD Green already has been modified with wdidle.    At present I am running Asustor Disk Doctor on the drive but at 15% after 1 hour it will take a while to get final result.
 I may even decommission both Asustor Nas and resurrect WHS 2011 as can mix and match sizes as well.

How old are the drives that are failing? Drive failures should be rare, sometimes it can mean something else is wrong - power or temperature.

They have a 3 year warranty, have them replaced. If you don't need the replacement sell them.

once this built in test has finished if it still shows bad I will contact where I got them from and send it to Auckland.  It was worse than pulling teeth last time from that place.
