What exactly happened to the data?

Real hard for me to ask but......what did they decide was the reason for the data loss?

Hopefully not............I ask so my mind can finally be at peace.....when I learn how then I can yell out all the profanities I can (mentally of course) then get back to enjoying the new TFP.

hard drives fail, it's that simple. In our case, two hard drives fail. Typiycally there isn't a "cause" for these things, they just sort of...happen.

Aside from being a stubbon jackass, that's pretty hard for me to believe unless there was some foul play involved. Or it just could be that the hd's were run straineously for far too long. Yeah, that's good enough. I'm over it.

Well, a physical crash can occur in one of many ways. The heads are held over magnetized metal plates spinnig at several thousand RPM. This creates a cushion of air between the heads and the disk surface. One way that many drives fail (one of the most audible) is that something happens to cause that air cushion to dissipate. The heads physically crash into the disk surface, shredding it on a molecular leval and eradicating data as the disk (literally) screeches to a halt.

Other problems can occur, a motor can burn out, a connection can break, the mounting hardware that holds the individual disks inside the drive can break and let the disks wobble out of control, crashing into the inside of the casing (it's happened to me.)

Someitmes, the data can come back, sometimes not. I burned out a motor, and successfully transplanted the data disks into another drive that had physical damage. If the heads crash, which I'm guessing is what happened, you probably have no hope.

Ventillation/cooling of HDD is very important. The newer drives are much more sensitive it seems. Oh, Segate rocks. Segate Cheetah is the real deal

Someone spilled Beer on the server.....causing a massive short to send 1.21 jiggawatts to the flux capacitor, thus propelling both hard drives back to the year 1955.... The information those drives contain could change the world as we know it. I have fitted the SS with the newest version of the flux capacitor, controlled by a overclocked 3.6 P4..... and about to attempt to travel back to 1955, To retrieve the T.F.P's data and perhaps save the world.... Wish me Luck!
