In that event, I'd be checking the drive makers web site for firmware 
updates for YOUR drive(s)

Seagate is pretty good about that.

I'm not saying this is your problem, but it is something to investigate.

The last 1T drive I updated had already used up 25 sectors as 
re-allocated at < 5,000 spinning hours. After the update it was about 
25% faster, and 80,000+ spinning hours later, still had that same 25 
re-allocated sectors. Its a good drive yet but amanda needed more space, 
so it got replaced with a 2T drive. Stretch isn't stable yet,way too 
many networking problems so I'll probably wait till buster turns stable. 
Networking already Just Works from the reports I read here.
