Just recently I wrote about how to mount a hard disk which is a member of an Intel Raid Array to back up data. And now, a few days later, I must report a degraded RAID-1.
Even the BIOS doesn't see the disk anymore, the Raid Controller sees something but completely messes up the disk information; take a look at the disk model (the disks are identical).
This is a completely new computer, taken in production only in June. One of the two hard disks, a Seagate Barracuda SATA III 750GB (ST3750525AS, 7200.12) already failed. A big disappointment to me, who has been using the previous computer with a single hard disk for 7 years. Is this bad luck or are the hard disks just worse now than some years ago?
Update 7pm: I recorded the sounds the defect hard disk made. If anyone's interested, you can listen to it here.
