• Drive rebuilding

    My brand new WD "My Book Live Duo" which is 2 hard disks x 3TB each is taking over 18 hours to rebuild the drive with only 47GB data in the drive. How do I know is this drive faulty or what's the industrial acceptable duration for drive rebuilding of this capacity?

  • Are Hard Drives Destined To Be Extinct?

    With the onset of ever-increasing storage space on flash drives is it ok to ask the experts here if the hard drive technology will soon be obsolete only to be overtaken by flash drives and 3D memory chips?

    I am about to purchase a new hard drive and want to get the best value for money. My choice currently lies between the Western Digital Caviar Green (5400 rpm and a 64 MB cache) and a Seagate hard drive (7200 rpm and a 32 MB cahce). So the question is, what's more important, RPM or cache size?

    When I plug my external hard drive into the USB, it does absolutely nothing. It doesn't recognize that a device has been connected at all.

  • Wiping hard drives in 100 PCs

    We are donating 100 PCs. How can I quickly and effectively wipe all their hard drives? I have looked into Mban and it looks promising but would I be better doing that or pulling all the drives and formatting multiple ones at the same time? What are best practices for doing this?
