Dear readers,

We have experienced some complete system freezes on DSS v6 Enterprise.
We susspect the USB key to be the cause of this problem due to the following entry in the critical_errors.log:
It's a while a go because we immediately moved to a new system with DSS 7.

Our question is if this log entry really reveals that the problem is the USB key on which DSS is installed.
We could nod find any other problems in the logs or on the Areca SAS card.
