Symptoms of a Hard Drive Going Bad...

As you will find out I like to keep my blog pretty simple and easy to understand.  In my last blog I wrote about how important it is to back-up your data.  In this blog I want to describe symptoms of when a hard drive may be going bad.
There are primarily two forms of hard drive failure,  logical and physical.  Logical failures are usually a result of file-system corruption.  This can occur due to a virus, accidental deletion of key files or registry components, and in some cases even electro-static discharge.
