so like copiers take hard drives - standard ones.
one of mine takes 4 of them. Now i have had this goofy issue with scanning that required me to replace them. You have to replace all 4 of them and they need to all be raw drives. I did so and brought the 4 home with me (there is no warentee on them and i get nothing for turning them back in) all 4 check out in diagnostics with means the scanning issue is likely still not fixed but i now have 4 80Gig drives for free!

actually lots of the drives i have used in places like my server are copier drives - copiers don't have bad sector maping so if one comes up with a bad sector it has to be replaced, i just mark a few sectors before and after the bad spot and some of these drives have been in a server, on 24x7 for a few years without ever failing.

This is my first attempt at blogging and replaces my original web site that has been online since...a long time ago. If you came looking for The Dragon BathHouse and Cafe, this is it's replacement. There will be lots do do here and if you are not carefull you will learn all about me. I might learn about me as well, along with metting and/or learning about you and that's the whole point isn't it ?
