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.
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.
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).
