Re: Should I replace my hdd?

Hard drives have never been so inexpensive and quick. You could pick up
a 500gb hard drive for about $50-60. Ask yourself: what if my hard drive
died suddenly in the next few weeks or months?

At the very least, back up any important files ASAP.

Any questionable HDD should be replaced!  They are cheap, and lost data
is expensive.
