Error message saying one of my HDDs is failing, what do?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Earlier today I happened to get an error message saying that one of my HDDs was in danger of failing and I needed to back everything up, or else I was in danger of losing all data. And previously, I had had issues with my PC going into CHKDSK on start up, so i assumed it was an honest to god issue.

So I removed the two oldest drives and reformatted to a brand new HDD, and about an hour later I got the same message again.

I still have one older drive installed, so Im wondering if it could be that.

But I did some cursory googling of this error and a few other people have gotten it, but it turned out to be malware.

Anyway, is this likely to be a real error, or some BS thing?

-::EDIT::-

Nope, it's actually the drive, luckily I have two new 2tb HDDS installed to use.

Now my new question is, is there any faster to way to copy data from one drive to another than cut and paste?

There isn't really any faster way than cut and paste :/ It sucks for HDD's unfortunately - best to just do a bunch of copy/pastes at once and leave it while you go do something else (watch TV, go run errands, etc.). I feel your pain as I just transferred ~300GB of data from one HDD to another the other day...took like an hour or two :x

Thats about what i have to transfer

It's all games, which I usually wouldnt bother with copying, but sadly my steam folder is on it, and thats a LOT of downloads.

Oh well, least in an hour or so my problem will be solved =D
