Well that was fun, not. I’ve just spent the entire evening copying virtual machines between these two drives because the left one decide 2.6 years was enough.  Lucky Linux is smart and gives you enough warning to buy a replacement drive. Though unfortunately my exchange database store became corrupt during the fault and I’ve had to restore my mail plus rejected a heap before I realise what had happened. Oh well at least I didn’t loose the lot.

On a good note, I remembered all the commands for setting up a Linux hard drive off the top of my head. LOL as this website server was one of the ones affected, I had to, where normally I would look at my Adding a HDD to Linux post.
