I have two Western Digital Harddrives, an internal 250 gig Cavier and a internal in an external case, that one is a 160 gig Cavier SE. I have been getting an error lately and I have no idea what it pertains to, its goes like this:

Windows Delayed Write Failed
Windows was unable to save all the data for the file
\device\harddiskVolume2\$Mft. The data has been lost. This
Error may be casued by a failure of your computer hardware
Or network connection. Please try to save this file elsewhere

So I downloaded the Western Digital diagnostic test, and ran both drives through the DLGDIAG Extended tests and both came out with flying colors. Also ran a checkdisk with no problems found. I thought the Delayed Write Failed error was for a failing drive, what else am I missing? Usually this error comes up while surfing the web, but not downloading or saving any files.
