I am using Gparted to create partitions in order to set up a RAID5 between 4x4TB drives. I managed to set up 3 of the drives using gparted with no problem, but I have had a lot of issues with this last drive. Every time I try to create a partition after making a partition table, it throws an error (in both disks, and gparted). Here is the exact error I get:

After this, the disk is unreadable until I reboot the computer. I have tried SMART tests, which show no error, and have tried to create this partition about 3 times now. Does anyone have any suggestions or should I call it a day and put in a request for a replacement drive?
