[Discuss] NAS: lots of bays vs. lots of boxes

Ok, a rookie question (but real) here.  How do you know if your drive is
near 'end of life'?  Calendar?  SMART statistics?  Hours of runtime?

I have been known to wait till the 'wheels fall off', but that always
causes minor panics and excess effort.

Suggestions that are easy to follow and quantifiable?
