Haha was going to say it's better than Seagate. Both Seagate 1TB I purchased, straight from the box, have an ominous clicking noise from them each time they are used... so I back them up with a WD Unfortunately that's the best I can get hold of locally.

wow...u're running through HDDs real fast. i've used both Seagate and WD. never really had a problem with either..but then again i probably don't use them as much as u do.
No Idea why you go through HDD like candy Neo, perhaps checking other things hardware wise to see if something is causing this.
Also make sure you don't have your laptop near anything magnetic, like big ass speakers etc.
Thats why I was referring you to a SSD drive, if there is magnets or something involved demagnetizing your HDD causing bad sectors, then at least with a SSD that won't happen since its chips that is used.
You can then use an external HDD for storage (and it wouldn't need to be a 2.5 HDD either so would be cheaper)

You mean far from the Subwoofer, and not the actual speakers right? Because if you mean the actual speakers, don't know how this Seagate HDD has lasted for 3 years.
you should regenerate it with low level format
it will regenerate your HDD bad clusters.
hope this help you.
There is no such thing as "regenerating bad clusters". You can reset the bad marker by writing zeros to the hard drive sure but it doesn't repair the actual damage that's there (and Windows will subsequently remark it as bad when you do a full CHKDSK command).
Once you get bad clusters, it's only a matter of time before you get a SMART warning from the HDD (which has yet to go off for me).
So are you thinking of getting another one now, or seeing how long your current Hard Drive holds out?
