    Urgently need SCSI disk

    Morning - had a slight problem with some of our older hardware and a failed SCSI disk. As this has some of our test machines, and we're in the middle of a test cycle I'm under a little pressure. Does anyone know somewhere in or near Croydon that I could pick up a 300GB (or bigger) 15000 rpm SCSI disk, or anywhere that would cover an urgent delivery (where urgent means as soon as possible so people stop shouting at me)?

    You should be able to connect a SATA 2 or 3 drive as a stop gap.

    Sadly, yes. Should have mentioned that first.

    Thanks to all. The crisis has now calmed down and thanks to Dave should be sorted early tomorrow morning.

    One week in and already suffering stress-related hair loss.

    In fairness he did say SCSI not SAS so my first thought was a drive with a SCA connector

    Just want to say thanks again to everyone, and particularly to Dave. The volume is now rebuilding and I can drink my coffee in peace for a few minutes.
