  2. RT @MKBHD: Mistakes were made...

  3. maybe use eDrive on WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM?
  4. After you recover the data, use a S.M.A.R.T. utility (CrystalDiskInfo for example) to see if your disk is (not) in a good shape. The main parameters you are interested in are: - Disk Reconnection Count - Bad Sector Count - Disk Re-identification Count If any of these is non-zero, your disk is dying and I wouldn't rely on it for sensitive data and/or tasks. You might want to RMA it, if applicable.
  5. Take the drive out and put it in another computer, and see if it comes up. File system errors may mean you're SOL, or it may mean you can pull 99% off, there's insufficient information to say.
  6. Last week
  7. I searched for this error in the web and I can say that there is some malfunction in the hard disk. I couldn't access Advanced Start up option so I couldn't choose System Restore option. Is there is any other way to restore the Operating system or only get my data recovered before clean re-installation?
  8. Check out these guys just chilling in Tesco's carpark

  9. Below is the ibbu08 (I don't have the ibbu07 online). The charge never really goes above 50-60%, despite reporting higher capacity and only 9 cycles (two weeks ago it said 6 cycles, hmm). I got this ibbu08 unit off ebay as used, not new, for about $25 (this one The ibbu07 was saying something like 500mAh full charge capacity, so that one is really dying, and it's the one I want to try replacing.

  10. All companies, large and small, are looking for a competitive edge. There is now a large promise of an advantage on the IT side of a business from both new technologies and better utilization of existing technology and data. While users now expect access to these new technologies, there is a gap in what is desired versus what is deliverable, an Availability Gap. A majority of the businesses polled report that they suffer from such Availability Gap. This gap isn’t just a nuisance, according to the ESG report, the gap impacts the bottom line of businesses by $21.8 million per year and stifles innovation.

  11. What does Megaraid Storage Manger report on 'Full capacity' for your batteries ? Yes, you also need a soic adapter, they come cheap. I agree, it doesn't cost much time and it's actually quite fun when you succeed.
  12. I too like HGST. Just grab an affordable 3-4TB drive, which seems like the sweet spot these days for cost, and be done with it.
  13. Neither reports a defective battery. It's just that the capacity has decreased a lot, holding little charge. The ibbu07 was at about 10% (reporting 300+ cycles) while the ibbu08 is hovering around 50% (despite reporting only 6 cycles). I wanted to a try a new battery that I have lying around, which doesn't costs me anything apart from a little fiddling time. For the eprom programmer, I guess you also need a converter from soic to dip. I'll try without any of those to see if it works. I'm hoping it will work, especially if I use an identical but new battery.
  14. Does your Lsi card report both your batteries as defective now ? I just use Stickvise for pcb clamping, regular solder and you can do it with any 30-40W soldering iron. You also need a programmer that supports a 24lc01b, you can buy them on ebay cheap - link , I also used the same chip on all my testing.
  15. If it's me, I'd just buy on price at the capacity point you want to hit. In quantity of one, it won't matter. Personally, I prefer HGST, but again, everyone has their favorite/horror story. Just back up whatever you buy and all will be good.
  16. Any specific recommendations? There are too many dang makes/models to choose from. My main concern is reliability, like you said for my application speed is not a necessity.
  17. It's something we've considered but don't have a great answer. In our lab, we don't hear any of them, but we have 5 racks of gear I do understand though if you're putting a NAS anywhere other than a closet or basement, noise may be a concern.
  18. For what you're doing, the low cost alternative is probably the right call. I certainly wouldn't pay up for a 7200RPM drive.

  20. I have a 250GB and 64GB SSD for my OS, Apps and games and a 2TB Seagate from 2011 for documents and media for streaming to a Roku. The Seagate is dying so should I replace it with something like a WD Black or NAS drive like WD Red or Deskstar NAS? The computer is on most of the day but the hard drive wont be accessed often unless streaming.
  21. For this (and all other reviews of products that might be used in home NAS / servers), it would really help to measure noise and also comment on the noise characteristics. Measurement of actual power draw might also be interesting. Noise is a key factor for home use though.
  22. I have both the 07 and 08 models, the former with a 1350mAh (orignally) and the latter with 1500mAh (originally). I'll post results. I could discharge the replacement battery to the same level that the original battery is before swapping the two. Hopefully it will recharge. We'll see. It'll be a while before I try these tests as I'm busy nowadays (unless I get really curious about it). I take it that you used an eeprom programmer and a new eeprom chip on yours? how much did those cost you?
  23. Apparently the bq2060A internal charge controller does not count backwards, several users has tried just changing battery but it was unsuccessful - relearn simply fails. I don't know what lsi module you have but it will be interesting if you post your findings, I have only edited code for ibbu07 so other modules would be interesting and might behave otherwise.
  24. Hmm, but even if that's the case, a relearning cycle should bring it to a usable state. I have a few 3.7v Li-Ion batteries lying around and I think I'll give it a try. Apart from time, I have nothing to lose.
  25. You do need to edit the hex code as the eprom keeps count of all battery data also how much capacity is left. When you replace the battery the chip still thinks the battery is exhausted and thats why code has to be updated. It's only when you refresh the hex code you can start using a new fresh battery and actually make use of it's full capacity.
  26. Looking at the numbers, Seagate is reporting revenue of $2.7 billion, down from $2.9 billion last quarter, however, up slightly (3%) from the previous year’s $2.6 billion. Seagate is reporting a net income of $194 million GAAP, down nearly $100 million form last quarter. Non-GAAP net income is reported as $329 million also down nearly $100 million from last quarter. Looking at diluted earnings per share (EPS): GAAP diluted EPS was of $0.65/share and non-GAAP was $1.10/share. The company’s gross margin for this quarter was 30.5% GAAP and 31.4% non-GAAP, compared to 30.8% and 31.8%, respectively, from the previous quarter. Cash flow from operations was $426 million, down from $656 million last quarter. Seagate is also announcing a cash dividend of $0.63 per share. Seagate Release 3Q17 Financial Results
