|SMART and USB storage|
One thing I didn't think about when I set up my new disk array is that SMART doesn't seem to be available on USB storage provided disks. I've just had a disk hiccup while getting ready to move it all to the US, and now I'm trying to investigate why. SMART would make that a lot easier. At this point I suspect that it's the USB storage layer, not the disk, which is having problems.
