HDD problems and update

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I have some problems with my hard drives lately.
I have two 80 gb drives in raid 1 or 0 I dont remember (the one that merges both drives) so i have 160gb where I install windows and all the programs.
I have this drives for almost 6 years and they work perfectly, or thats what I thought.
Then I have a Western Digital 320gb "blue caviar" drive that is 3 years old and its getting in my nerves. I has been having some problems of "inconsistency" I ran the disk check several times but it breaks again and again.

So the problems I have are: inconsistency in the WD drive, windows frozens and also blue screens of death.

I wanted to ask about the fronzing and the blue screens.
That has to be the 160gb drive where I have windows installed right?

Also I wanted you guys to recommend me a new drive to buy. Because I hate WD now and I don't know which manufacturer to choose...

So thats it. Thank you for your time.

Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB.

The bluescreens/freezing are indication of the drive failing. Backup your data now.

Which one do you say is failing?
the 160gb or the 320gb?
