I’ve now got 2x 300Gb Maxtor HDD’s in my LaCie Drive. They took about 2 days to do the "7-Pass Erase"… Nothing’s gone bad so far.
😐 I have had 1 issue though. I came back to my PowerBook at one point, and tried to access something on the drive, and it said that it was disconnected.
It seems to be all good now though after a restart…. I’m not sure the +35C days have helped either. It’s all now just a waiting game to see if it fails again… I sure hope not.
Maybe I should setup a RAID 5 or 6 NAS.
