For my work I have 7 x Mac Pro 1,1's, 3,1 & 5,1 desktop computers.
On one of the 1,1's I have had 2 drive failures in the last 12 months. In disk utility 2 relatively new Western Blue drives (less than 2 years old with low usage) have demised with 'S.M.A.R.T failing' status.
I know that this is probably not that unusual in itself, but I am wondering that as this has happened now twice on only one of my computers, is it possible that the computer itself may be causing the issue?
Any thought please?
