One of my hard drives is slowing down and makes intermittent clicking noises. I'm pretty sure it's about to die and have backed up all it's contents. Is there some hard drive stressing utility or software that I can use on it to accelerate its death so that I can send it in for warranty repair?
If not, any ideas to write such a script/program? I guess I can write a program that will just write contents from /dev/random until disk is full, then erase and repeat.
