I got LaCie 500GB Golden Disk in 2007, and its………..dead yesterday ;_;
Love the case design much and got it for a not so cost-effective price. Never imagine that it will die in 4 years…
Fortunately, I still have copy of photos and freelance artworks in my Mac. Frightened anyway.
So, backup, backup and backup. I then asked my friends who are familiar with hardware and they advised me to try RAID.
Though painful, I also bought another 2TB for normal use. Will also try Time Machine while I got my new Mac sooner.
