Got owned by a hard drive

So I lost a hard drive in my desktop that was in Raid 0. I think I'll still be able to pull stuff off it but it won't boot to windows. Just ordered another one but now I'm stuck with the laptop for 4 days or so.

I bought a 150GB VelociRaptor to replace the two drives that were in Raid 0. I wanted to go SSD but it's just not worth it now.

Re: Got owned by a hard drive

RAID can be so touchy.. I had that same problem with my desktop also.. got sick of it.. put in a basic seagate hard drive, and gave the whole computer to my mom

I'm itching to build another tower now though.. laptop and vista suck for games..

Re: Got owned by a hard drive

I don't want to buy 4 hard drives for my desktop. I run raid 5 in my server which holds all my music and important files.

I replaced my raid 0 in my desktop with a single 150GB VelociRaptor
