My new 2 TB HDD that I just bought about a month ago just crashed. Its not completely dead yet but it refused to let me write to the disk a couple of times and the disk has started making the click of death. Thankfully its still functional enough for me to copy the data off it. I had most of it except the music and movies already backed up so wasn’t too worried. But its functional enough that I am in the process of backing up everything to the other 1TB drive I have.
Might need to borrow drive space from Surabhi and Vinit till I get it replaced but atleast I didn’t loose data.
But I am disappointed in Segate. This is the first time i have had a drive die on me in a month. The others that died on me had reason to, one got dropped from the table the other traveled with me all over the world so it was probably exposed to some shock or something during the travel.
Now I need to find appropriate packaging to ship the drive to Segate and wait for them to ship me a new drive… 🙁 Ah well… Not a lot I can do about it.
