I have a raspberry pi with 15 disks, summing up to ~70 TiB. While I was plotting, the farm lay out around the room, in “open air”. Needless to say, it was annoying everyone in the house, myself included.
When all was done, I bought and assembled an IKEA Platsa shelf and put 3 shelves in it - each about 10cm in height. There I placed my farm, only to see it’s failing misserably
My card in Pi is somewhat small, so I use one of disks spare space (~66GiB) for storing .chia folder.
Every couple of hours, this drive fails and I cannot unmount it (even with -f option), requiring pi restart.
I suspect this to be correlated with smaller space and heat, but can’t really measure it. Can someone share their experiences w/ me? I saw that people are using fans, but always figured I don’t
At this point, I spread out the drives in three shelves (check pic) but, other than getting some fans, this is all I can think of.
I use USB 3, external drives (mostly WD Elements).
Any opinions / advice are welcome.
