    The original torrent I downloaded was with THREE zero byte text files. So, when I upload the same torrent to TPB, got the error message. That's why I had to create a new torrent for TPB. :D

    No idea... one day I heard the tick tick tick sound coming out from the chassis. Moments later, it's gone. So, didn't think much of it.

    The next day, I heard it again... LOL... then I wanted to check each drive using the Windows checkdisk, was prompted that I had to unmount the drive before checking, wow... like that? Then the sound was gone again. Okla... next time then. :haha:

    Next day, the sound came back and non-stop this time. Had to check disk d this time. Then I remembered... hey, I can check disk without unmount if I don't "check" the fix any error check box. I did that, and checked one by one until I reached the porn disk. The check stopped half way each time. Tried the unmount to check too... LOL! Was taking too long, so I stopped it. It remained unmounted. :p

    Rebooted, cannot detect the disk anymore. :shifty: :doh: :shock: :shock: :shock:

    Took it out and hooked it into my external hdd enclosure. After a few tries of power-up-down-up-down... got detected! :dance: Then quickly copied out the stuffs... a few minutes later, it's gone again... not even half-way copying, maybe just 1 file and a half or something... :doh: and it never appear again for the rest of the night. :wall: :boohoo:

    That's when I said my goodbye... :boohoo: :boohoo: :boohoo:

    1 day later, I tried AGAIN... it came back ALIVE, got detected and stayed!!! WOOHOO!!!! :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:

    I remembered it went off once half-way copying, but this time it came back online when I powered it up again. Managed to copy EVERYTHING OUT!!! :beer: :beer: :beer: :haha: :haha: :haha:

    Hard-drive motors can die easily. Sometimes they struggle to run before they shut off.

    I have that same issue, lucky me my MEngSci thesis was saved elsewhere before the HDD gone dead. Whew! :whistle:
