Well, i've just laid my 250GB external HDD to rest. Damn thing has a mechanical problem and heats up to stupid temps & is no longer detected. Was working fine yesterday afternoon but not the evening.
To say i'm pi**ed would be an understatement as 230Gigs of it was used by Music/Software/Pictures & over 160 movies.
I was looking for an excuse to buy a 1TB drive & now I have it LOL. Better go shopping on monday.
Farewell my friend
we've had some good times.
