hard disk failed

Well, I had another hard disk failure yesterday.

This time, it was one of the two hard disks in Mac mini Server (Mid 2010 model).

Mac mini Server 1TB

Unlike S.M.A.R.T. failing in PowerBook G4 almost 10 years ago, this time it was I/O error.

This Mac mini Server (officially name: Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server) was released in mid 2010, and purchased through a friend in Taiwan. (Apple screwed up the pricing in Taiwan's online store, so I got it for a bargain.)

This Mac mini Server has been running Keynote slideshows for past many years, and was hardly switched off.

After some system failure yesterday, I had some problem switching it back on. Applying SMC reset, I was able to switch it back on (finally).

Unfortunately, the second HDD inside seem to be dead, but lucky, the main contain was in the first HDD. It seems to me that it's about time to look for a new Mac mini replacement (or getting new internal HDDs).
