Steam game files disappear?

Hello, recently i played Planetside 2 and it worked just fine in the morning and then an hour later i tried it again and it did not work so i verified the files and 5 gigs of files were just not there so i had to re download them and then verified it a separate 3 times and all of it was there. And just today i played it again and exited then went back to it again and it did not work and now 280 mb of files are gone. My files are disappearing for no reason.

My pc parts are here in case anyone needs to know them.

    Virus ? or failing hard drive...


    Run a hard drive test in DOS...HIRENS CD etc, it sounds like a failing hard drive...

    I don't have money for Norton. But i used Western Digital Data lifeguard diagnostics and did the extended test and it passed.
