Really? That's awful! It does make sense though. So I have to buy a whole new hard drive! I just bought the hard drive about 7 months ago! I bought it from a local place. I hope they give me my money back.
(HDD is a hard drive right?)
Yup. I've had a few Seagate hard drives die on me. One flat out bit the dust after about 6 months while two others suffered severe performance degradation until they died completely as well. All my Western Digital ones, including ones that are much older, are still kicking though
