Two week old Intel iMac hard drive died

Man, when it rains it pours! We have had major hard drive issues this summer, but that is another blog post. We just got AdManager Pro 4 installed, and have been using it for about two weeks, though only one week of "real world" use.

Yesterday it started making an odd noise, and crashed. I got it working again but this morning it was not working; blinking question mark icon. It must have crashed again before 11 PM, because that is when the automatic database backup goes off, and we have no backup for 8/16.

After BGSU ITS replaced the hard drive, I was on the phone to MediaSpan to get FrontBase and the AMPServer all setup and running.

What a long day, especially after being in the newsroom late making sure the Freshman Edition went out the door smoothly.

Sadly we have to re-enter a day's worth of ads. And yesterday was about the busiest day of the year.

There is no reason for that iMac hard drive to go bad in two weeks. Like I said, when it rains it pours.
