I've been getting extremely constant HDD failures in my Macbook Pro, first with the original 250gb drive, then with the replacement 500gb I bought. I just put in the replacement 250 that Apple gave me when the original failed, so hopefully that will hold up, but I lost a ton of data in the process.
I do tend to tax the drives pretty heavily, the last 500gb drive was tri-booted. What could cause these common HDD failures, and how can I prevent them? I'm starting to loose face in HDDs and have no idea where to store my data!
