Hard Drive Failures

studio-pic26Earlier this year, we experience a loss in data in one of our hard drives at RCD Radio, this was due to a electrical fault within the device, we did what we could to restore from the hard drive, but luckily, RCD Radio has backups of its music library so if anything like this was to happen, we could restore the music collection quickly and easily.

Photo on 19-11-2012 at 17.22After this hard drive failed, we had a few weeks of RCD Radio downtime, so we can set up a temp hard drive to handle our music library, we used one of our old hard drives, which has experienced no problems but was allot smaller, so we only restored music we needed for the station to co-operate with until we were in a position to invest in a new hard drive.

The time has come to upgrade after our temp hard drive has now also failed, it failed late last night, it has been playing up for a month or two, but its finally gave in.

Because this hard drive has now failed, we have now ordered its full time replacement, however, we will be unable to bring any broadcasts until this new drive has been fully reloaded of the music library and installed on to our system, this is an exciting upgrade for us, but it may take some time to build it in.

studio-pic37That is why tomorrows episode of NOW! That’s What I Call Music has been cancelled and re scheduled for 2 weeks tomorrow instead, it is also why DJ Lozo Mixes Episode 4 has also been re scheduled for 2 weeks on Saturday, even though the majority of music for this broadcast is not on the music drive, but on a MacBook Pro, we feel its only right we cancel and reschedule this broadcast to, we are still going to be without any appropriate jingles/promos.

Don’t worry, we still have full backups of the music data stored in a secret location, but it may take some time to copy everything over.

Thank you for understanding and sorry for any inconvinence, we will keep you updated on this situation on our twitter and facebook.
