Delorean loses ANOTHER hard drive...
I KNOW I am going to lose my system drive soon in this thing if I do not act quickly. So, I need to take action. Instead of plopping any random drive in to replace my data drive, I will be buying two new 2GB drives and creating a new RAID array. I'll migrate the system drive data over to the RAID array, and recreate a samba partition and recover my data. This will give me redundancy for the future, but it's going to be a difficult move.
Not only do I have to do all of this without losing data, but I have to do it without REBOOTING THE MACHINE. Why? I'm convinced that this damn system drive WILL die if I reboot. So, this will be an adventure for sure.
So, stay tuned. I'll be recovering my data soon. I also have to see if I cannot recover my Minecraft Wordpress database from the failed SSD. When (and if) this works, I will post a full workup on how I did it.
