my first EHD disconnect
Well, I got my first EHD disconnect last night. Fortunately I had a backup of the movie on my MythTV, or my wife could have been quite upset.
Later, I hooked the drive up to my Kubuntu 8.04 desktop to check the status of its contents. The kernel first ran the ext3 journal file on both partitions, then mounted them, and I was able to check that the files appeared to still be there and looked to be OK. (Of course, the files on the EHD are known to be thoroughly encrypted, so I didn't bother trying to play them.)
When I reconnected the drive to the 9242 this morning, it behaved normally, and I let a 1 hour recording on the EHD play out to be sure. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to access the drive again from the 9242 at all, so this was a pleasant surprise.
But this will sure be annoying if it keeps happening.
