Hard Drive Failure?
I'm running vista and have a 150gb rapter, and a 200gb wd drive. They've been used heavily for the past 2 years but latelly i've been hearing the 200gb just stop spinning and start back up. My Computer confirms that the drive goes offline and is not accessible (at which point all kinds of applications say data is missing and i just restart).
so... time to buy a new drive or is it jsut a little hicup? The last time it did it was 2 weeks ago, but before that it was doing it ever few hours. Most of the time after about 10 minutes it starts back up again (enough files in the memory to satisfy programs like itunes i guess?) I have a lot of the files backed up but nonetheless i would lose a lot of data if it crashed (i.e. incomplete torrents, pictures of the last few months, game profiles, website files, etc).
