    Exclamation Possible bad disk?

    Guys,

    I'm running my home Untangle on one of these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 (ADATA Premier Pro SP310 128GB SATA 6Gb/s mSATA Excellent Read up to 540MB/s Solid State Drive (ASP310S3-128GM-C)).

    Purchased brand new in May. Today, I'm seeing these errors:

    Code:

    Deciphering dmesg disk errors have always stumped me. Anyone know if this is a fixable error, or if it's indication of something wicked coming this way?

    TIA.

    I can't say that I've seen that one before, what I can say is I lost my shirt selling ADATA drives... never again.

    If you see that condition looping, I'd suspect a defective controller on the disk.

    *Edit* I'm actually seeing similar messages on my unit, and I'm using a Samsung 840 EVO 120gb, it's over 6 years old and burned through 50% of its wear surface. These messages might just be normal.

    Interesting. It's a bit disconcerting, isn't it? I have been doing solely linux since 1998, but I still find disk error messages confusing and esoteric. Hope that improves in the future.

    Thanks for your help. ;-)

    Yes, that is a disk error.
    Probably not a good sign.

    The errors I have are six months old... due to an experiment, not from my disk. So yeah... back to thinking your SSD is failing.

    Seriously need to remember that -T flag, so I don't read things improperly again.
