I have always loved the sound of disk I/O. I'm listening to the Conservancy backups run now. That bursty crunch is like music.
Has anyone compiled sounds of how hard drive I/O noise changed over the decades? I am wondering what made that high-pitched note in the middle of the crunch that went away sometime in the mid 1990s.
And, this may be a lost sound, like modem noise. At least for the moment magnetic disks are still cheaper than solid state, though. :)
