Broken SATA connectorComputing
It looks like the SATA cable connector specification isnt up to much. At first I couldn’t believe it when it broke off with no force whatsoever, but after looking into it and a couple of google searches later it looks like it is a problem that can happen all too often.
Luckily the really nice people at Hitachi storage are looking into it at the moment. The drive is a 400Gb Hitachi, one of the biggest they offer. I will let you know how I fair with them.
