My new hard drive is toast

Just at a month and the new one I bought just took a dump on me.

So I've spent the morning loading Windows 7 on a cheap one to get me by until I can RMA it.

Re: My new hard drive is toast

I tried loading 7 and it would just hang up right after copying files. It sucked cause I wanted to check it out. Then, the revert back did not work and I ended up stuck with the windows 7 boot loader. Had to finally re-ghost my system...but that worked out as I was able to update my base ghost image with some new software I found and get it up to date with updates and such.

Sounds alot like that Seagate drive I had a while back that took a crap on me a few weeks after I bought it. With the only unbacked up copy of all my important stuff on it.

Seagate's are notoriously unreliable. Avoid at all costs.

I've always ran Western Digital drives, but the price was right on a pair of those Seagate's. The sad thing was, I never set up the mirror. So when the drive died, I had never set it up to make backups. . I haven't had any trouble out of either one, since.
