Well, I’ve now lost two Western Digital disks in a month’s time. First a spare drive in a jump logical volume on my server, and now my primary media drive on my powerbook has taken a nosedive. On the upside, the latter is backed up occasionally to an identical drive right next to it. On the downside, I haven’t done that in several months, so I need to figure out what CDs it is missing. Joy! It’s a half terabyte external FW800 enclosure that’s probably long since out of warranty, but we’ll see, since it was retail packaging, if the internal disk is covered by the 3-year or 1-year plan. In the meantime, time to rsync that to my file server before that drive dies and I’m suddenly left with the need to rip hundreds of CDs again.
