As I posted earlier: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/272053-14-disk-sect...
It was a WD10EARS-00Y5B1 which got damaged.

So I'm gonna buy a new one and wanna know your suggestion for an internal hard disk with 1TB capacity. Consider that my PC is on most of the time (more than 20 hours per day), so I don't think green models would be a good idea, do you? I'm gonna store my music and videos on it and maybe use one partition for my new Windows 7 later. Looking for something between 70$ and 100$. The disk reliability is really important, I don't wanna have another experience of data loss again.

(Sorry for my poor English BTW)

To avoid experiencing data loss again, you must do backups. A single drive could last for ten years or fail after ten minutes. Even enterprise-class drives fail.
