    I have a Poweredge dell server computer with 2 scsi hard drive. It was
    bought in 2001. Does anyone have this server or can tell me if i can get
    another 2-3 years out of it??? Also is there a way I can test the hard
    drives to see if the hard drive will last. It will only be connect to 3
    computers just to share files. It was in my other office and I upgraded
    because of space and mem but I want to put this in my very small office . I
    did take off the NT and installed the xp pro so I have 2 hard drives now
    with one with nothing on it and the other with all programs. I will use the
    other for all files that have to be saved and shared with the other
    computers. thank you for your replies.

    I have a Poweredge we bought in 1999. Still running on the original drives
    (SCSI Raid array). This ol' puppy has *never* taken a crap <g>!
