    sorry to be a pain but has anybody tried this. I Have a new computer on order for work with a 120GB HDD at 7220rpm and 8Mb buffer (claims comparable to 15000rpm SCSI)

    Dont need this drive and an old slow 40GB drive would do just fine at work

    So could this HDD work in the SKY+box after a cut,

    What if I give the disk time to spin up say 6s (but assuming too slow for the box to reconise it) then do a quick power off/on so the disk had not stopped spinning and would therefore power up quicker: would this work???

    Wolud the drive work anyhow?

    Has anybody had sucess with 72000rpm Hdd after power failures?

    I had a power cut last night - it lasted about 10 sec - my sky+ was recording Now and Again at the time and I thought it would fudge it up, but as soon as it booted up (about 10 seconds) it started recording again which was surprising.

    Anyway this was with a 5400 120gb so prolly wont be of much use.
