• External Hard Drive – 1TB – What is working for you?

    What has worked (and not crashed) for you when looking at a 1TB External Hard Drive. Most of the feedback I find is from a very short user timeframe. I need to know who has used something for more than 6 months or a year.

  • Hard drive failing on production server

    We think a hard drive is failing on a production server. I copied everything to another drive on a different array. How can we monitor the health of the hard drive/array?
