Default Another One Bites The Dust

my "C" drive in my WHS, died again. this time it was one of those nasty older seagates (500GB).

fortunately i had file duplication turned on so everything is still there.

the server wouldnt turn on, so i went through the drives, hooked them up one at a time, and 8 of the 9 were detected. none of them booted up so the only one that could not be detected must be the O.S. drive. i deliberately made it one of the 500 GB drives.

anyway, would a Western Digital 500gb Black be a good replacement?
sorry to drone on.

yes, but it will run a good 5+ warmer than a green drive. maybe more :)

its my understanding ( or have things changed ) that one should not use a "green" drive as on O.S. drive?

thx rob123

My System Specs


Any reason why it needs to be 500GB if its your install drive?

On my own server, running Windows Server 2008, I'm using a 2.5" 80GB HDD as my OS drive as any files my system my download goes directory to the correct storage device in my server array.
