    Distance travelled is completely a non issue.

    Doesn't really sound like a short.

    You can check the board by grounding one probe and then, using the other probe, check each of the non ground contacts for continuity.

    What's the board?

    While they'll pay the price you paid for the drive I doubt they'll pay the repair cost which is likely to be substantially higher.

    There's nothing to assume here.

    You know you have a short on the 12V rail.

    You remove it and find the short is no longer there.

    Problem solved.

    The process it outlines is simple and straightforward. It is quite easy to carry out and has led me to the offending component every time I have used it. Kudos to modem7.
