    iMac 2011

    ONE of the thunderbolt port of iMac is connect to a akitio thunderbolt dock (OS with 2 SSD)

    the other is connect to Kanex thunderbolt to Gigabit ethernet + USB 3.0 adapter then connect to external USB 3.0 3.5" case with toshiba 3TB hd


    the problem:
    the new toshiba 3TB, no matter GPT or MBR, no matter HSF+ or exFAT, has problems when verify disk.
    and even infinity partitioning ...
    can never be use normally

    SMART is ALL OK

    What's going on?

    The Toshiba may be going bad, even if SMART is verified.

    It can't be repaired. You're going to have to get yourself a new drive.
