Hard Drive Problems

The 80G hard drive turned out to be a corker.

The weekend after I installed it I bought a 500G drive. Sheer coincidence. After the 80G died every night for about 3 or 4 days I moved everything over, diddled the drive letters and now we’re back in business.

That was yesterday.

Tuesday, it died while I was at work. I spent most of the day trying out my Disaster Recovery Plan (don’t tell my boss), which, as it turns out, leaves much to be desired, although as luck would have it the database backup ran just before the system crashed. But I was missing a few core utilities and only managed to run about four updates. When I switched back into production I didn’t bother bringing the updated database over assuming I’d get the data again, but we were down to less than 500 proxies so I ran the resurrection script and brought it back up to over twelve hundred.

That huge increase in the number of proxies prompted me to take a look at the recheck code. I think I have fixed that issue but we’ll just have to see how it goes.

Meanwhile, as I was going over my DRP, GoDaddy decided to migrate the Web site to a new server, so everything sort of worked out.

So… back in business and back in maintenance mode.
