My raid gave in. The WD disk is still going good in the raid. But the seagate disks died. Both of them ! at the same time! as soon as the warranty period was over! Its like there was a timer in there somewhere.

Any ways, yesterday I went to SP road and replaced all the seagate drives with WD drives. It cost me a hand and a leg, but hopefully I will not be reinstalling the system for next couple of years.

This has hit my home automation project time lines by couple of weeks

-UPDATE: I finally succeeded in opening up the old hard disks and scourging all parts, the motor and the ND magnets were the best spoils of the war. I build wind chimes out of the rest and they sound really good. I will post a picture soon.
