Hey Ronald, are you sure there is no corruption on the disk? Have you
preformatted your new drive? I had disks that lost data if used with
no pre-format stage. Have you tried forcing fsck? Sometimes when my
machine crash there is a silent corruption on the filesystem and some
settings are lost/changed...
