Journal permaculture's Journal: Fujitsu HDDs ~20GB dying like flies

Our site has had many dozens of Fujitsu hard drives break down. It appears they run WinNT OK, but Win2000 makes them break in 12-15 months. The problem is well known, and is to do with the HDD BIOS which is on a chip on the backboard on the HDD itself. In theory, you can revive a dud HDD by swapping the backboard though I have no examples of this having been done.
This has been one of the most time consuming problems on my site during the last couple of years.
