Please pay attention - nobody here was spreading "windows FUD". Brian
reported something he'd obviously been told, but _said_ he didn't believe
That said, "No way" is too strong a term. Anything that is going to rewrite

back to full use, but the prevailing view that the drive was already flakey
is far more likely.
