Hello. Im Having FBSD running in a P3 with 4.3GB HD, and got 2 extra 80GBs HD that fails the SMART check. I did a full HD scan with tools provided by the HD's developers and over 90% of the HDs are safe. I want to use those HD for home of the lowrank users, and keep the critical data in the 4GB HD. Do u know any pretty safe FS for this kind of unstable hardware, i was thinking in something with software RAID maybe. Thanks for any suggestion, im pretty new on FBSD world (and english-speak world too). BTW, if the solution can be applied to DFBSD, it will be very nice, becouse i got another machine P1 runnning it, and all HDs i can get for it use to have a lot of failures already. See ya Sdäv --------------------/QUOTE Damian, You might find Steve Gibson's SpinRite a really useful purchase. It recovers most drives it works on, and a single purchase can be use on any of your personal drives. It is it's own bootable floppy or CD, and works very well. http://www.grc.com/sr/spinrite.htm I recommend using that now, and then tread lightly until you feel confident about the drives again. If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door. "I can" is a way of life. More and Bigger is not always Better. The road to success is always uphill. ____________________________________________________________________________________ Luggage? GPS? Comic books? Check out fitting gifts for grads at Yahoo!
