I am getting a popup from Windows 7 every once in a while saying it has found an error on the hard disk and I need to backup my files.

I built my computer not to long ago with no problems at all. The computer acts normal and I am not having any problems but every couple of days I see this message pop up :??: 

I have run a checkdisk or scandisk whatever it's called and it said it couldn't find any problems with the HD.

Any ideas?

Pop-up or not, you should backup your system at regular intervals.

Hard disks are generally very robust devices, but occasionally they do fail prematurely. This link will provide more information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S.M.A.R.T.
