Hard Disk Crash

Occurred May 12, 2009 (Permalink)

Ever wonder what a head crash does to a hard disk? You'd best keep backups.

I can definitively say that I have never seen a drive do anything like this to itself before. Oh sure, I've powered a few of them on with the top case removed and made a mess before... but this is just flat out impressive.

Sure, but you probably didn't witness the drive fail and let it skid around for 3 more days after that! :)
