I have two questions:

How do you know if your hard drive is corrupted?

interesitng.....I didn't think twice about this at the time, but reading this thread jogged my memory...

last week when i was completing my newest build, I installed my OS onto an old Maxtor 19GB drive to trouble shoot some issues with drivers. Anyway, I ended up going to bed and woke up the next morning and hit the power button.....it came up with a HD error, Windows missing file, needs to be repaired. I thought that was odd since I had been using that OS the night before for hours with no issues......then, it wouldn't let me "repair" it. I ended up just wiping the drive and re-installing to finish my trouble shooting.

Seems like it's a common problem on Maxtor......never liked them anyway, a buddy gave me that drive for free a couple years ago when I was desperate for storage........I've never bought a Maxtor......
