Good one Ultra!
The problem is, I use these things for back up storage.
I can't have them get jacked up on me.
I figured that it is probably crapped out, but there has to be more knowledge about these issues than the hard drive companies are letting on or Microsoft/OS for that matter.
I spend 60.00 for 120GBs in an enclosure and it craps out.
Haven't had it more than 45 days.
The first drive that I had this happen to was a WDC 160 GB 3.5"
go for a buffalo technologies or something else with 750 GB of storage and raided drives.
if you're a mac guy, Macworld just had a big spread on these drives and the best to get.
Applies similarly to PC world I would suppose too since they support both.
