Sadly on Tuesday the SMART services of one of my hard drives started to spit out doom and gloom. You know the type of messages, failure, data loss, magic smoke, back up now, etc..
Well that sucked, so I went and ordered a new drive from ascent at about 10pm Tuesday. Now come lunchtime Thursday, I drop home between shifts to find a courier card (I always miss them). So after a quick trip down town I now have a box with my end drive in it, so that’s great.
Probably work on it tomorrow. Once the new one is in and taken over all the functions of the old one, it will be time to pull the old one. I don’t actually think it’s that old, so I’ll have to check the purchase date, and if it is still under warranty, grab a copy of all the SMART errors, and send it back.
Guess Friday evening will be a little more busy than I had first planned.
