One of the hdds of the 4e servers just died. Luckily we have RAID. I am currently backing up data. Later I'll have them swap the disk and everything should be fine again.

Update (2014-08-26 03:00): unfortunately the 2nd disk is about to fail, too. We will have them swapped one at a time and then upgrade to a newer model.

Update (2014-08-26 15:30): We did lose a server demo here and there but now all the defrag related data is safe. Instead of fixing the old server we are probably going to swap the machine for several smaller boxes.

Update (2014-08-27 16:50): We rented a comparable server to bridge the gap to the new server setup.

    Glad to hear the majority of the data is safe.

    It's a gameserver. There isn't really anything on it except serverdemos.
