Funny you should mention that--last week I replaced a 9GB late 90's one on
a servers. Fortunately, I had the SMART monitoring enabled on Linux and it
diagnosed the "Drive is in imminent danger of failing" condition. Whole
tracks were going sour. Replaced it with a 9GB Quantum of approximately
the same age. Maybe I'll get another couple of years out of it.
