My company supplied me with a 300GB external (USB) Maxtor hard drive that was pre-loaded with Ghost images for all the different types of servers that we work on. Last night this piece of shit that I've used like 5 times in the past couple months ass-fucked me. It kept showing up as an empty drive when I was trying to reload this crashed server. But, if I hooked the thing up to my laptop it was fine (at first). Eventually, it stopped responding even when connected to my laptop. Luckily, I got it working long enough to copy the image files off that I needed. I had my own personal external USB 2.0 drive that I was able to copy the images onto and then use to reload this server. Fucking added about 3 hours of bullshit to my night. I fucking knew these drives were going to screw us, but at least now I'm told we're getting replacments of some sort.
