except I can't send it back to Aria, I need to return it to Seagate.
Of course first I need to blat it, and back up all the bits I've downloaded so far.
thank heavens for c:\downloads\ folders, eh?
So, will be sans PC for a few days while disks sort themselves out. Seriously tempted to buy another drive, which should turn up tuesday if I get my act in order, then just add the replacement drive as a backup...
