my "C" drive in my WHS, died again. this time it was one of those nasty older seagates (500GB).

fortunately i had file duplication turned on so everything is still there.

the server wouldnt turn on, so i went through the drives, hooked them up one at a time, and 8 of the 9 were detected. none of them booted up so the only one that could not be detected must be the O.S. drive. i deliberately made it one of the 500 GB drives.

anyway, would a Western Digital 500gb Black be a good replacement?
sorry to drone on.

yes, but it will run a good 5+ warmer than a green drive. maybe more :)

its my understanding ( or have things changed ) that one should not use a "green" drive as on O.S. drive?

Any reason why it needs to be 500GB if its your install drive?

On my own server, running Windows Server 2008, I'm using a 2.5" 80GB HDD as my OS drive as any files my system my download goes directory to the correct storage device in my server array.
