Hard drive down

My sweet sweet CM Storm Stryker steel ATX full tower case holds 8 hard drives within 2 stackable, removable, and rotatable combo cages. That space affords me the luxury of keeping a number of older drives running. One of my oldest hard drives failed last week. That happens from time to time. A Maxtor brand DiamondMax Plus 9 200 GB SATA hard drive manufactured on August 19, 2003 failed last week. The drive lasted between Tuesday, August 19th, 2003 and Wednesday, December 5th, 2012. That means it was functional for 3,396 days or 9 years, 3 months, and 16 days. It was replaced with a WD Blue 1 TB WD10EZEX SATA drive.
