    searching for "harddisk" suks.

    Ok, I was searching for opinions on how to mount my harddisk. I know this is discussed quite a few times, but ignored it back than 'cause I was nowhere near mounting my HardDisk.
    So now I want to read the threads I ignored before, and thought to use the search engine.
    Well that's just too bad for you marsjell, with the exeption of maybe 5 posts, no-one uses the word harddisk, just the abbreviation "HD". The search engine thinks "HD" is to short, I must use 3 leters or more...

    So I started to search manually but gave op.. there are almost 22,000 threads in "general hardware discussion", I don't know about you, but I don't have the time to browse to all those posts...

    Crying shame, I really wanted to mount my HD in a way that it would last the next ten years, I don't want to start a new thread asking what I want, 'cause I know the only replies will be "That's been discussed plenty of time here, try the search option".

    damn damn damn (just ****ed off)

    This search term find loads: "mounting AND hard AND drive"

    This finds more: "mounting AND hard AND disk"

    This find some: "mounting AND HDD"


    Total is more than 5 posts...
    Time for you to destroy that evidence.

    "hard drive mount" came up with A WHOLE LOT of hits.


    use the * before your HD like this *HD and it will return some hits.


    One must understand the search and the proper terminology before he bashes it.

    Try vibration as well

    Althought I know how you feel, the search engine isn't very good if you can spell.
    And you say people actually pay money for M$ Windows?
