You did a article on disk drive upgrade. What like to know is that Hitachi purchase Deskstar from IBM. Did Hitachi fix the problem with the Deskstar disk when it dies, it is all a once. No chance of backup. The computer working then it starts to act up, so you reboot and doesn't come back. This has happen on more then a dozen PCs and laptops. I call the old disk Deathstar. I've been work on computers for about 10yrs and if someone has a computer that has a problem and it has a Deskstar disk it is usually the disk gone bad and no chance to get anything off the disk. When I work on a computer that has the old IBM Deskstar disk and it is over 2yrs old I tell them to get a new drive ASAP and backup everything.
