so ten months after tearing off the plastic of the retail box my seagate
is ready for dirt nap.
its a ST5000DM001 i think or something like that.
kept going offline but reboots would wake it up until last week it went
seems like hammering it with big workload is what does it.
smart commands fail no model number in post no show in device manger.
I been lamenting the fact i didnt get completley backed up.
But kept screwing with the drive and messing around in bios until i got it to wake back up and got my files.
wondering what they will send when i RMA it and will i get busted for running it out of its external case.
have they fixed this crap yet or do i just get to do it again when they screw me with some recertified repeat?
