This morning my Gen8 greeted me with a blinking amber colored led bar :-\
After some doodling inside the various HP tools, it became apparent that disk1 (15 months old) was defect or missing. (lovely conundrum...)
I took out the drive, and added it into a Win7 system to see what's up, and it shows as RAW now in the disk management tools.
Win7 immediately complained about a non formatted drive...
In the past I had a drive or two doing this, and one time was able to restore the drive back into ntfs, with the data recovered. Much to my surprise....
As this is a server disk, I'm not really want to do this, especially because I'm running RAID.
Anyone can chime in as to how this could happened, and how I can check if the drive is still OK, and this a nasty and unfortunate fluke.
As data related things go, it looks like the server will rebuild with a new disk replacement. Right?
Tips and tricks are welcomed,

I have a Lumia 900 that I use just as a wifi device. I got it off of craigslist in order to learn more about it. I am considering moving to a Windows 8 Phone on Verizon but I know they are not going to get the 920. A couple of discussion points here.
I wonder if Verizon will get a 920 similiar device or not. Also, I've never popped the SIM cover on my VZW iPhone 4s. I would like to be able to change phones on a whim by swapping SIM cards. My understanding is this is only possible on AT&T.
Lastly, I'm looking forward to the Windows Phone update that makes the 900 look more like 8. Update 7.8 is it?

I saw the Lumia 520 is coming soon to AT&T Prepaid Plans and heard somewhere that someone used a cheaper prepaid phone as sort of their second phone for music/video/radio; very light stuff that didn't necessarily need a regular plan. Therefore, I thought it would be a great idea to purchase the phone, along with a 64GB Micro SD card, and as an Xbox Music subscriber, make my playlists/music available offline and fill up that device with my music and podcasts. I currently have a Lumia 928 and love it. However, I don't like wasting my battery listening to podcasts/music during my commute to work and would rather save that battery for more important things. I have no intention in purchasing an iPod (1st gen Zune owner) nor do I have any intention in purchasing a prepaid plan. I'd strictly use the phone as a media player and internet device if Wi-Fi is available. Therefore I was wondering:
Does anyone in the forums currently do this? If so, what has your experience been like? Can I only purchase the phone and not activate it with a prepaid plan and basically be "offline"? Thanks all for your help. Look forward to your responses.
