Hi,

I'm looking to upgrade my 2 empegs to SSD so I don't have to keep smacking the side to get the HD to spin up. It looks like the link to the builder_bigdisk_v21.upgrade file website (http://rtr.ca/bigdisk/) is not working anymore. I thought it was working last week.

Anyway, if anyone can provide me this file it would be appreciated.

thanks

The link is fine, but my server has no internet right now -- major outage in the area, but forecast to be back online at some point this evening.

Power came back on a couple of hours ago, so the internet here is working again now. Builder image should be accessible.

After going through tons of old builds, with an old XP laptop (USB to serial didn't work so got the XP laptop out of the barn), with 2 used PATA IDE's, the new build that wipes out all the old junk fixed my issues.

I'm not going into all the pain but 4 days (off and on) of fighting issues, glad both empegs are going again, thanks

Not sure if I'll do this again in 20 years, then again how old am I???
