My first reaction is that the history was lost on the cleanup work rather
than the drive replacement...

s@xxxxxxxxxxxx Lost object history - disk

Please respond to
Midrange Systems

On 4/19/2008 [Patriot's Day for us New Englanders] our operations staff
replaced the disk. We [developers] understood we had some cleanup work to
get done prior to the replacement. All went well.

However, I was quite surprised to find after it was a done deal that we had
lost some object history.

I rely on this information to check when I last ran a program or when a
file was last updated. It's OK now for objects that have their information
changed frequently.

Obviously it's too late, now, but could this have been avoided?
