[root@shiva root]# dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/md0

Can’t say I ever wanted to see that command, let alone type it… Oh well… It looks like my “safe, stable” disk in my raid on my file server has gone away, and I’ve been depending on the WD disk that crashed twice on me in the first month of ownership (taking out 16G of porn and mp3’s in the process)…

I got all my data off (boy am I glad I just bought that 120G disk for my desktop), and now I’m attemting to rebuild the raid with some performance tuning… hopefully that Maxtor hasn’t seen the last of its days.

Share the love
