    I think I have a server that just plain out HATES me!!

    In the past 12 months it has had 4 primary drive replacements and is now reporting 4 bad sectors on its primary drive AGAIN!!
    The machines got 2 gig of ram and rarely if ever swaps and its primary drive just has the os and cpanel on it and I replaced it last with an enterprise class drive from WD directly from the manufacturer in Oct barely 2 months ago ~

    One would think 4 drives in a year would be enough - Im gonna rip every cable/fan out of that unit and its little power supply and replace everything grrrrr I think this just has to be a power supply issue ...........

    Anyone else ever had such an oddball thing with just one unit ??
    Its like it damed or something~ :mad:

    That's really unusual. Is the server hosted in a controlled environment? Hard drives can get pretty hot...

    Are they definitely bad sectors, rather than simply corrupted data?
