After a day filled with so many misfortunes, it has to end on an even lower note.
My freaking 500GB harddisk crashed on me. And this is the 2nd 500GB hard disk that failed. What’s in it? Life time’s worth of photos. 80GB worth of photos, and some backup and archived files. Not to mention the movies and tv series I’ve downloaded!
Thankfully I’ve learnt my previous lessen of not keeping my eggs in one basket. Same photos are in another two 750GB hard disk and a 500GB hard disk. (yeah that’s an overkill, but only because i was transferring them a week earlier and havent deleted them yet.)
This is the 2nd 500GB crashed on me. Word of caution, don’t buy Seagate hard disks 7200.11 series. I heard there may be a problem with the 7200.12 (newer) series as well but yet to be confirmed (and I just recently bought that one too -_-). I have 4 Seagate 7200.11 series hard disks, 2 which has failed – both 500GB, and 2 more 750GB in my NAS, RAID 1. I wonder when that would fail..
