I/O errors when seeding from samba share

I have qBittorrent 4.3.8 and a home NAS made with a Raspberry Pi 3 and 2 disks with independent power supply. After 4~6 hrs qBittorrent starts throwing I/O errors on the files I'm seeding. My disks are fine, not failing, first thing I checked. I have to restart qBittorrent to make it go away for a few more hours.

I have no idea what's wrong, the samba share works fine otherwise. Only qBittorrent seems to not like it. Any idea of what might be going on?

samba shares have always been clunky on all clients (as far as I am aware). can't you just put rutorrent/rtorrent on the pi, and make it seed directly? of course you can qbittorrent-nox too, but it's a bit heavier than the rutorrent combo.
