Finally, after almost three weeks since formatting it, I got my MAXTOR hard disk replaced under warranty yet I was not expecting this, I got +20GB on the new one! Both are 300GB MAXTOR OneTouch disks but the first one had 279GB of actual capacity while this one has 298GB!
I'm almost certain the retailer didn't know about that otherwise he would've never given it to me.
Words of the day:
Compunctious? No. Advantageous? Yes.
Currently: Ecstatically elated.
