Hi ,
 I am a student at IITD, India and we are running squid on our proxy
server. We recently noticed problems with the disk that housed the squid
cache and i guess finally the disk has developed bad sectors. Can it
because of the excessive read/writes that squid does on the disk ??
On trying to use the same partition for squid cache we get error messages
like "Resetting SCSI bus" or "Scanning inode ******* returned short
reads". Running an fsck also crashes a machine or takes forever.

Can you guys help me out by letting me know what kinds of disks can handle
such huge amounts of read/writes better (SCSI/IDE's) ??? Also can we turn
the caching option off for squid ??

Thanks in anticipation of help
