I was using ssh when i saw these problems :
- MBWE was slow to answer to commands
- some commands didn't work like nano, top
- vsftpd.log was quite big but i was unable to view it
No special noise at this step
My only choice has been to reboot it by ssh, but it didn't even manage to stop correctly
Here come strong noise, like a disk trying to read somewhere and unable to.
I removed power cord and plugged it again (half an hour later), same thing, same noises …
in fact it tries 4 or 5 times to start (each time with the same noise) then it stay powered up but without booting.
I made no changes in the past week, i may think it was too hot (28°C here), but this shouldn't result in a harddrive failure.
Of course, i have a lot of stuff on it, and it's a mooded one.
I'll try to open it again and access the drive from another computer, but i'm quite sure it won't work better :(
Any idea or someone had the same problem ?
Then, i'll return it to my french store (not sure that they'll exchange it, i think they'll send it to WD), hoping that neither my store nor WD will check and see that i opened it.
