I'm in the process of downloading StarCraft 2... not doing anything else and just had a warning pop up that there is a hard disk failure and to back up my files. I just built the computer a couple days ago and was running fine until this. What should I do? I don't have any files to backup on the computer because like I just said, I just started using it.
Your SMART information is what I would expect to see for a new disk drive I doubt that there is anything wrong with the drive. Have you tried running check disk? (Select properties for the drive and then the tool tab) there might be a coruption in the directory structure of the drive.
dude this 'info' is same thing as s.m.a.r.t in speedfan will tell.
for sake of it dload Smartfan, and post the screen shot of smart values for these guys. otherwise for your confirmation, click 'perform in depth online analysis' etc it will show you proper easy word info telling you if your hdd is fine or not.
I have the exact same problem. Probably the same drive also. The drive is like 5 months old, and I just installed Windows 7 x64 about a month ago. I got the warning when I exited Mafia II, I hadn't installed/removed/moved anything recently. It said Windows has detected a hard disk error and it tells me to back up my data immediately. Samsung's HUTIL doesn't work, so I ran every test in Seatools for windows and it passed them all. It shows no SMART errors. I did recently install a GTX460 though, so I'm wondering if it's drawing too much power for my almost 3 year old PSU. It also did it last night while I was running Furmark.
