Hard Drive Failure…

So just FYI, my server’s hard drive partially corrupted last week.  I have no idea why.  I was able to peer through my log files and saw nothing unusual.  So, my apologies for the downtime Wednesday through today.  But, obviously, we’re back up and running now, albeit on a slower, less reliable connection (boo-hiss Mediacom).  Still, props to StorageCraft ShadowProtect for the quick recovery.

Update (7/17/2011): So apparently it wasn’t just software; my drive began to fail again yesterday evening.  It has now been replaced with a nearly identical model which, hopefully, will last longer than ten months.  By the way, has anyone else pondered just how much time they’ve spent fixing computers?  I mean, if you sum it all up, it’s got to be solid months of time.  Not that it’s time wasted, but, well, it sure feels like a waste…
