Bye, shining disk (Seagate T10)!


Seagate T10 SAS HDD disk (75GB/disk), 300GB model

I was late to office today (due to an accident in Lincoln tunnel, transferred from bus to train).
Just settle down everything, my boss sent me a msg,
“I saw all jobs on the database are running slow, something wrong with our server…”

After checking the server, one drive died totally with a very weird mechanical sound (guess the read/write arm is trying to move, and failed).
I replace the drive with another spare one and dissemble the broken one (due to data safety reason).


Damaged cylinder in the inner/first track

As you can see, the disk will no longer be recovered with the permanent damage caused by the read/write head.
