What's the point of security features if we have to disable them for things to work right?

when Quantumn FireBall failed, it made me:

shutdown windows 98
lose about 5 of my favorite music videos
all of my music
my games

my configs (along with windows :P )

i was 11 years old, couldn't do much for my lost data

Isn't Maxtor an Quantumn division?

My PC has a Maxtor (6V250F0). I can't say if this is the best brand, but IMHO it works just fine.

Seagates mostly. 5 yr warranty is nice and I've had decent experiences with them. I wouldn't hesitate to buy Maxtor either, especially now that Seagate owns them.

I've owned Western Digitals (I love my Passport) als0, and can't complain. Seagate gets preference, though.

Two Samsungs on the older machine, that does not like to many partitions on big IDE disks, 120 + 250 GB

Two Seagate ST 340062, taken out of Maxtor Basics Personal Storage 3200. Were cheaper than similar internal IDE drives at that time.

Several USB2 drives, including a HDD media player
P4 1800 i845GE (F/S Scenic W)
P4 1700 i845G (F/S Scenic L)
98SE SP2.1d + nusb 3.3 / 2kSP4 / XPproSP3 (each)

A couple of years ago I would have said Western Digital but now I have to say Seagate. I'm currently running four Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST3750330AS drives in this system.
