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.
