When the error requires taking the disk offline to fix it, I care. Until I can access all of a Tbyte disk in the time it takes to access a, say, 200
Gbytes, the downtime per spindle will be greater, and what you really care about is the downtime, for any problem.*
It's bad enough waiting for a fsck on a 100 GB partition.
* Well, data loss figures in there somewhere, but lost data typically hurts a few users, but being offline affects everyone.
