Re: Possible HDD failure?
Replace it! If it's 2 years old and it's a hitachi replace it NOW! Those drives are prone for bad sectors when they hit 2 years+ so I suggest getting a newer and better drive manufactuerer. Such as fujititsu it is much better as it usually lasts longer. I have used them before and they lasted about 6+ years and it also is resistant to bad sectors for longer.
