    We need to replace a hard drive and chassis later today. I'll update exactly when it will happen. Could be 1-2 hours downtime. Thanks!

    What kind of drives do you use for these servers? Out of curiosity.

    We have two 150GB 10k Raptors.

    Ahh nice, I have Raptor in a secondary pc, loud as ****.

    Have you ever thought of going to a legitimate server drive?

    What do you consider a "legitimate server drive"?

    Ahhh, makes sense.
    Potentially more reliable though, but I won't get into it.
    Good luck with the replacement and fixes! Be quick so we all can have our PF addiction fed!

    If you're writing a post, best to do it in word, notepad, etc... first, just in case.

    Chassis swap is complete. Hopefully now we can relax for a bit and enjoy some stability :)

    You'll be happy to know that the new HD is a VelociRaptor. A bit faster than the older model Raptor.
