Tech support from D-link called me, after a short chat, we concluded that the unit is faulty and I’ll have to bring it back to the shop for a 1 to 1 replacement.
Computer at work refused to boot into BIOS. Spent the whole morning shopping for a new one. I now have a Quad-Core CPU.
Will work on restoring my blog over the weekend.
Purchased a D-link DNS-323 with 2x 1TB WD Cavier Green (as to why the fuck did I buy WD again, I don’t know.) harddisks to run RAID 1 and to start backing up files.
Brought it home, unpacked everything, begin setting up, only to find that the unit is faulty. The web UI doesn’t work.
Server’s harddisk died.
It will cost $2050.00 SGD to recover the data. So I say screw it.
Simply because with that amount of money, I could fly myself to Japan and have a great time to make up for this loss.
And this harddisk that died, was expensive as it’s meant for 24/7 operation. It lasted less than a year? what the heck…
The report says:
Physical damage to the read/write head assembly.
Electrical failures located throughout the printed circuit board.
Multiple read errors located throughout the platter surface(s).
Possible file structure damage.
P.S. It’s a Western Digital RE2 harddisk. :(
