I know there's been a chunk of discussion in the past ref replacing SKY hard drives, but as my 40gb drive failed a while ago, for the 2nd time, and is well out of warranty, what is the best drive to get, bearing in mind that 5400rpm drives are not asy to get and PCWorld (hmm) down the road fm the office only stock 7200 drives, and there's a Maplin next door but one to get the bit (which I can't remember what it'scalled. is it 10mm??)? Also, what are series links, ref that you need to note them down and re-enter them? Thanks for info, it's just that after doing a System restore, Housekeeping, and redownloaded the software, I rank Sky abt this, knowing the drive had failed again, and they said that for £65 an engineer could pop round. Well, for £85.00 I can get at 160gb drive from PC World (though I'll have to wait for an epoch for someone to take my money), so the engineer can pop off elsewhere. Tks.
