I'm hopefully onto my last problem area. The 6TB I'll be using on the RPi4 has been corrupted twice and I'm trying to find out why. I found this (https://www.linuxquestions.org…tion-observed-4175536517/) thread which indicates that when Linux mounts a hibernated disk this can cause corruption. I've set my disk to go to sleep after 15 minutes inactivity so its entirely possible that it was that state when I took it off the Windows PC and connected onto the Pi.
What does anyone here think? Likely or not?
The 6TB disk is formatted to NTFS, moving to Ext4 is not a viable proposition, but I could move to ExFAT if people think that would be more stable.
