Pretty much wait for it to run into the ground then RMA it since it's way inside WD's warranty.

Seagate has never failed me. Before my 1TB I had a Seagate HDD which lasted me for 5 years, and has been passed over to my dad now and it still works fine. I would trust no other HDD manufacturer.

I got an eHDD WD 1TB last year, and it's working fine. I basically use it as my main HDD, because I only have a 40GB built into my desktop computer.

I think Neo practices Kung Fu with his laptop.

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)

To add further insult to injury, my server is running critically low on space so I have to buy yet another HDD so that I may continue to my server's growth of data.

My bad sector count has trippled after yesterday's check. This is not good.
