Seems all is fine but let me throughout this thought.

 

Strange things happen to HDDs when they are starved for power. Whether it is a sluggish, aging or over heated PSU or problems from you mains.

 

Just a thought.

Well, there's no way for me to know, right? I haven't checked here, but have you heard of other PSUs dying on the 485? Because, truth be told, that would suck for me to repeat that week in the near or not so near future. I was considering going with an all frankenbuild, but that costs a bit more than what I have around in the piggy bank. Great point though. As I was out of town, I still haven't gotten around to checking the old drive for actual physical issues. Perhaps I should start this weekend then.

There have been power supplies that have died in the HP MediaSmart Servers. However, I would be more inclined to think hard drive and it looks so far like that is the issue.
