Microserver – USB Failed (owee!)
September 20, 2011
Well, it only took three months, but the USB key I was driving my Microserver from went bang over the weekend. It started accumulating a lot of errors, and fsck fixed the errors, but they just came back again. Doing some analysis, I don’t believe that I was committing too many writes to the key - I only would have made under 1Gb worth of writes, and with a 16Gb USB key, there’s no way I should have committed enough writes to be able to blow the read/write cycle limit of even one block on the key.
