Re: [hard drive] Had a SSD die on me..
SSD's utilize Flash memory. In my experience this is how Flash memory typically dies - with little to no warning. Hopefully you had a good backup!
yeah.. all my important files and stuff are stored on a second drive - and all that data is backed up on my remote NAS (on-site and off-site.)
I didn't really lose anything, except for o/s settings & customizations - instead of re-installing Win 7, I broke down and finally installed Win 8 on the drive which I had just bought to upgrade my laptop. All is good now, just need to RMA the bad drive
So there are still people out there NOT using an Imaging program to image there system partition.
Greatest thing ever invented, the imaging programs that is. Drive fails, install a new/other one, boot the PC from the Rescue media and your back up and running in 15-30 minutes.
Or Reinstall and do all your settings and programs without an imaging program.
