RE: [vox-tech] working around bad blocks?



Well, hmmmmm, click/read click/read click/read.  Grumble grumble grumble.  

I haven't replaced a drive in a few years.  The last two I replaced were
Western Digital  (4GB and 8GB fairly new at the time so that's how long since
an HD failure for me).  I see on Western Digitals site that 3 year warrantees
can be purchased for an additional $20. ick!

Least I got the rest of it correct. :)

Thanks,
