New 250GB SATA Drive...is here

Now to let it warm up, while I prep my old system the replacement of the old 250GB drive.

Somewhere along the way (probably when I rebooted it last night applying updates), the old drive reappeared....so I'm quickly doing a full backup of the drive.

Which is a lot better than what I was faced with before....piecing together parts of the disk from different backup sets. Using the different sets might have been tolerable...since the parts the change frequently are backuped (almost) every weekend. While the parts that don't change much, less frequently. Though I know I had made changes to some of the less frequent parts, etc. So, there would've been a certain about of loss.

Meanwhile, last weekend while I was suffering...I decided to generate the RMA, just incase it was like Maxtor and required me to run diagnostic. When I tried last weekend, the diagnostic didn't detect the drives existence. And, it didn't seem to be necessary to get the RMA generated anyways.

Not sure what I'll do with the replacement disk when it arrives. The only thought would be to see if I can find some IDE controller that works in an AMD/SiS box with RedHat 7.2...and use it as additional storage for my DVArchive server.

No feedback yet

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
