I want to use RE4 as desktop but what happens if error recovery limited by TLER?
TLER limits recovery time to 8 to 15 second or similar, desk top drive can take 2 mins to sort out recovery of bad sector etc
So if recovery stopped then will it go back and sort it out later or will data be lost.
( OR WAS DATA LOST ANYWAY AND WE ARE JUST resetting to KEEP AWAY FROM THE BAD SECTOR when IN RECOVERY MODE)
and of course how ofetn does it take more than the shorter time to recover a bad sector anyway?
My aim in looking at RE4 enterprise 500 GB or may be 1 TB drive is to get more reliability as the New egg feedback figures for unhappy dead drive is well above the 3 to 7% that it used to be 3 or more years ago. the WD RE4 500gGB i has much lower failures feedback than most drives listed ther i have looked at.
I use drive for HD vido editing and my 7200 sata have worked well for many years for 500 GB size before bad sectors begin to increase. I back up files but not as often as I would like due to time work pressure.
