new hdd, old problem
about 3 months ago, i bought a brand new western digital 80gb hdd model number wd800jbrtlw and this hdd was the best i ever seen, it was dead silent, and ran cool, like it was off. now, here i am 3 months later, and i can hear the hdd spin up, hear it seeking(defrag dont make any help) and its running hotter than ****(120f). whats your advice? i have a 40gb i can use as backup, but i have some important files on this drive, and if its going out, i want to make sure its all backed up.
EDIT: just a note, its a se(special edition, 8mb buffer, 7200rpm, eide)
