hard drive


Today I contacted Dell about our HDD. Evidently we have the "Keep your hard drive" warrenty. I've never even heard of anything like that but I like it. I didn't really want to send back an operational or partially operational hard drive with sensitive data on it.

I asked if i could drill it or disable it any manor other than a simple wipe. They just said keep it. I don't know what they would do with it anyway.


This morning I've been installing software on the new citrix server. I guess i'll need to install all this stuff on the backup server as well, but that'll wait till another day. Right now the app of the hour is Visual Fox Pro 9. As much as I hate VFP our company refuses to see the light and continues to use it.

I'm also attempting to recover data from a failed hard drive of one of our programmers. It's been running about 15 hours now and it's just at 1%. It has recovered quite a bit of data so far and looks like it's moving again. Hopefully it'll finish soon. Gotta get the data off and then go to Dell to get a replacement drive.
