Yea, it seems both of my SSDs were fine, just HDD is making a sound.

So, you didn't transition over to windows 8 correct? I thought I found myself previously reading that you did but I guess could've been wrong. Either way, Windows eight or not. We'll do our best to help you if you could use some more help. thumb.gif

Thanks for your help mate smile.gif But not sure if it's me that wanted Win 8, as I recall I was never going to transition to Win 8 :S

At least it's still under warranty. I'd be pissed off a 6 month old HDD took a dump.Glad you didn't lose any valuable data.Happens though. I bumped a WD Blue HDD with a 120mm fan while I was benching and lost 320GB of data,couldn't recover a single file.

Yea that would suck. I got my black from China, got relatives over there, but still a pain getting it back over there and replaced. Guess I'll just pull one out of my well aged machine, that HDD seems to still work wink.gif

you should be able to rma that drive to western digital. if you can prove it has bad sectors western digital should be able to directly replace the drive straight away. that's a shocker a 6 month old drive is failing from western digital. never had that issue before.....seen a few hitachi drives fail in my day, but nary a problem with western digital drives. this could be why im a Seagate fan though. anyway, glad we found the problem. free antiviruses are good, I always recommend avast free antivirus and you should be able to find it on the internet, I think its worldwide as the company that makes it is in germany

For a quick answer~ does WD provide global warranty? As in the drive I got was overseas, but can it be RMA'd in here in Australia? I've never seen a problem with HDD before, used WD and Seagate in my time. This is the first one to fail per-se, quite annoyed about it though...

I believe so. I think you just go to support on their website and start an RMA with the serial number.

Hi Guys, I had the same issue with a twist.

I had two hard drives in my PC (one with win 7 and the other for storage) and everything was fine. Then my boot up time became ridiculously long and I figured the drive with the OS was dying so I purchase a new on, this time a SSD. I installed win 7 on it and everything was super fast. So, i connected the old hard drive that I used for storage and the long start-up time returned.

I guess the next question is, can two drives die at the same time? I mean whats the odds?
