    I got 2 emails from the Smartcheck:

    Second email:
    Code:
       S.M.A.R.T Errors on /dev/sdb
                    From Command: /usr/sbin/smartctl -q errorsonly -H -l selftest -l error /dev/sdb
                    ATA Error Count: 15 (device log contains only the most recent five errors)
    Error 15 occurred at disk power-on lifetime: 7199 hours (299 days + 23 hours)

                    ----END /dev/sdb--
    First email:
    Code:
       S.M.A.R.T Errors on /dev/sdb
                    From Command: /usr/sbin/smartctl -q errorsonly -H -l selftest -l error /dev/sdb
                    ATA Error Count: 4
    Error 4 occurred at disk power-on lifetime: 7178 hours (299 days + 2 hours)
    Error 3 occurred at disk power-on lifetime: 7178 hours (299 days + 2 hours)
    Error 2 occurred at disk power-on lifetime: 7087 hours (295 days + 7 hours)
    Error 1 occurred at disk power-on lifetime: 7087 hours (295 days + 7 hours)
                    ----END /dev/sdb--


    I m not sure what this error means, should I replace the drive on this machine? Should I be worried?

    Sorry to create a topic about this, but I couldn't find those errors...

    Thank you

    Hello :)

    I recommend checking the following log files for any indication of a drive failure:

    Code:
    /var/log/messages
    /var/log/dmesg
    Thank you.
