Hard drive labeler RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to know is there a hdd labeler like Jerry McCollom's MediaSmart Drive Labeler as I know this will not work on non MediaSmart Servers, and I know that if the drives can be labeled right then if one fails then I know which one to take out and replace.

  • Try Sam Wood's Disk Management add-in. It allows you to build a wireframe and identifies a failing drive for you. Note, however, that it's dependent on the BIOS and Windows to correctly identify a disk. Some motherboards will re-enumerate all disks every time you change (add/remove/move connectors) your storage system. In that case, the disk that was "disk 1" yesterday could conceivably be "disk 3" tomorrow.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
