Wow...that shouldn't even be possible. Can you keep that share open for a while? I want to send the link to some folks internally here to see if they can get to the bottom of this. I think we've begun to narrow down the problem, but I'm working on trying to figure out how to make sure you at least get the part you ordered.

BTW, although the drive death has been severely slowed down - I just lost another drive. No sweat, it is RAID56 and I have plenty spares. I add the new drive (identical 1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200) and system goes into rebuild. Very slow for a looong while, but it boots, etc. We reboot the following day and machine gets stuck. Power down and restart and now RAID is gone... Move it to another machine and still gone. Move the other machine's RAID5 and it works, so it is not the controller... No idea what happened, but this systems are really not helping my work. We jus finished d rebuilding the machine from scratch (Win7 64, etc...)

I am not trying to be a wise guy but Seagate drives have been suspect since 7200.10 and their purchase of Maxtor, not sure if that is related though. You may want to consider going with Western Digital.
