This is sometimes accompanied by a 'chunk, kechunk' noise, and can happen during normal runtime (ie not just at startup). I've now opened it up and made sure the cables are secure; no kechunks yet.

I was wondering what I could do that would stress test it enough to cause the problem to appear again? I was thinking of some sort of recursive find that would have a peek in each file? I presume if you just do "find / -print" then that may just access all the directory entries and not access any files?

Mike,


Get ide-smart from http://lightside.eresmas.com/ or smartmontools from http://smartmontools.sf.net/ and have a look at the drives internal error log.
