That what’s Nicola said: If there are few errors (=Buffer Overruns) during startup this could be accepted if the error count does not further increase during recording. This is for HDD recording. For recording on SSD/Flash I guess only 0 errors are acceptable, since they neither have to spin up nor vary in access times due to seeking around.

And just to repeat some hints for recording multitrack on HDD:
– always start recording on a freshly formatted device (no fragmentation at all)
– do not copy additional files from a PC to that drive (recording need to seek around that data)
– do not erase files/sessions (this also requires additional seeking)
– do not defragment a multitrack recording (interleaved tracks will get sorted, resulting in additional seek times)
