    Glad to help.
    You said that my drive array is a "suicidal choice". What do you recommend instead?
    As USB (esp. 3.x) is not much stable/reliable interface and USB-to-SATA converters add another layer of possible failure, I recommend to connect all Storage Spaces physical disks to internal SATA ports (it may be necessary to open/destroy USB enclosures, extract HDDs and mount them into computer case). If the motherboard used is equipped with only a few SATA ports, there are plenty of 2xPCIe / 4xSATA add-on cards available. Of course, monitoring at both the SMART and Storage Spaces levels on regular basis is a good idea but unfortunately not warranty of avoiding failures.

    dalchina: Did you really read the first post, or you only want to increase number of your posts regardless of their value?
    CrystalDiskInfo 7.5.0 was showing the drive as good, with no warnings, prior to the failure.

    "Hard Disk Sentinel (not free) is excellent." In one of the earlier posts in one of these forums I read about HDS -- got it for both laptops, the pay-for version, and HDS has warned me about impending HDD failure, enough for a backup, long before HDD failed.
