I've lost another damn hdd! I lost one a few weeks ago due to, well - i dunno it just stopped working. They (Maxtor) sent me a replacement, but it was a re-built one. Now it's dying/dead. Those [email protected]^@(*$^!
I called and got another RMA #, and chewed out the rep for sending me a rebuilt in the first place. Not that the guy deserved it, but he was the one who picked up the call and so was the point-man for the attack.
I had to vent.
I've made sure that they are sending me a brand-new one this time, but it's gonna take a while to get it. In the meantime - I have no space on this hdd (fresh install of the OS on it) to install anything other than the very basics. No toys!
I don't want to reinstall all my OSs I had on that drive - what a P.I.T.A. that was to get them all to run together.
But it's not just the OSs, it's all the apps, updates and settings that have to be reconfigured that will just piss me off.
I'm not even too sure if I can recover all the info, 20+gb worth - not including the 10gb partition that had the main OS, from that drive. Though it still runs, it goes "click, whiiiiirr, grinnndddddddd" and makes everything freeze while the OS is waiting for a response from it.
Is it just me, or do maxtor drives just suck?
