I discovered this morning that my IBM drive has errors. I was kind of expecting something like that to happen. I bought it before I read the Slashdot report of all the anecdotal evidence that IBM had been having production problems. This is actually the first time anything like this has ever happened to me.

I suspect the data I lost wasn't important. But, recovering the other data wasn't easy. It took 5 hours of my time, and a lot of careful work.

Since errors on HDs tend to spread over time, I need to buy a new one soon.

IBM should warranty your drive.

Sucks to lose a disk, but they (IBM) are pretty good (about replacing broken stuff), especially if it was one of those drives made in hungary.
