Question about Seagate (ST380011A) 80 GB IDE Hard Drive
I bought a new Seagate hard drive (SATA) and loaded Windows XP on that along with 3d max , etc, software applications.
Just after 24 hours, when I restarted the system, the OS crashed and even I lost the partitions also, means all my uploaded applications were also lost.
Before Seagate, I used Hitachi, which also had given same kind of problem and even developed bad sectors after every hard disk failure.
Can anybody suggest me how can I stop this crashhing and what are all the measures I need to take?
I've found this to just be the nature of hard drives. You never really can trust them, thats why you always need a backup. Maybe look into a fault tollerant RAID solution if it's really important (kinda expensive)
