Question about Hitachi ( 0A30229-20pk) 400 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Need to find a Hitachi Serial ATA 400 in stock

We need a drive replaced in our raid and can't seem to find them in stock anywhere.  We were thinking of replacing it with a 500 and reformat it as a 400.  Can we do this?  All other drives are 400.
Answers to both would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Hi,

Odds of finding that drive new are slim to none but you can use ANY hard drive of at least same capacity to replace it. In fact as a data recovery specialist I always recommend my customers use several different brand/model drives in their arrays and simply elect to use the smallest one as the size for RAID on the others as this greatly minimizes the chance you will ever have multiple mechanical failures in a short timeframe.

Feel free to replace it with anything 400 or bigger and your raid should be able to assign an appropriate sized partition to the drive while it rebuilds itself.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

I need a diagnostic tool for RAID falure code 0. Initial boot indicates degraded condition. DISK scan does not seem to remedy the issue. Did the drive actuually fail? Is there a fix? Primary disk still...


It looks like you have two arrays here. The first one being a mirrored RAID array and has only one disk. This means that the other disk has failed in some sort. This does not mean that the drive is bad, just the RAID failed for some reason. You will need to rebuild the RAID if you want to maintain the same level of redundancy.

You can just attempt a rebuild the RAID to the same drives but if this fails you will want to replace the bad drive. In order to do this you will need to make sure you can tell which drive is which. You do not want to mirror the bad drive to the good one.

If attempting a rebuild to the existing drive does not work or is not an option (because the failed drive could really be bad), you will need to determine which physical drive needs to be replaced. You may be able to hot-swap the drive but if you can power things down, that is always safest. Once the new drive is installed, you can rebuild to it and all should be well after that.

Hi,

No the drive is not customized at all. It is a standard SATA Data and Power connector. However, if it was already mounted in a laptop chances are the laptop manufacturer may have put an adapter on the connector end to allow for tight right angle insertion into the laptop chassis which isn't possible with the stock connectors without leaving the drive loose in it's slot.

If this is the case grabbing the connector and pulling straight away from the drive should pop it loose and reveal the stock SATA connectors under it.

If you're having troubles removing this peice, comment back with the make and model# of the laptop it came out of and I'll see if I can pull a diagram for you.

Most of the new systems and motherboards support SATA connectors onboard. In your case there is none as you have found. So the best option is always upgrading to a new motherboard in case you need to add more SATA drives. You can also try to find SATA add-on cards, may a little costly types. These cards use PCI interface and very easy to install but hard to find one. I hpoe you could find one from a hardware store near you. If your motherboard has ordinary PCI slots then the SATA adpter will be less costly, otherwise (if it features a PCI-X slot) it will be costly. Following is a simple description on what the market has to offer: SATA II - 150 4Ports PCI-X with NCQ, Raid 0+1, Raid 0 and Raid 1 ! You can upgrade your desktop computer to have four Channels Serial ATA Generation 1 and Generation 2 transfer rate of 1.5 Gbps. The board provides a 64bit, 133 MHz PCI interface on the host side and four, fully compliant Serial ATA ports on the device side to access Serial ATA storage devices such as hard disk drive, ZIP drive, CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM. Note: Fault tolerance: RAID 0 (Striping), RAID 1 (Mirroring), RAID 0+1 (mirrored-stripping) and RAID 1+S (Mirrored-Sparing) improve the data performance and provide the data redundancy and rebuilding.
