I upgraded to the OCZ-Agility3 120GB from a 60 OCZ Vertex2 SSD. I cloned the drive from the Vertex to the new Agility. Everything seemed to have gone well and have not had any problems.

Recently in the passed month I have gotten this error:

Error message

I downloaded teh OCZToolboxMP and ran the SMART utility and don't see anything wrong:

Is there any messages in the event log? –  crea7or Apr 7 '12 at 22:42
    
My experience is that if Windows actually manages to detect a potentially fatal drive problem, then you probably do have a drive problem. –  techie007 Apr 7 '12 at 23:07
    
Here is what I see in event log: The driver has detected that device \Device\Harddisk2\DR2 has predicted that it will fail. Immediately back up your data and replace your hard disk drive. A failure may be imminent. –  Jasiu Apr 7 '12 at 23:30
    
Windows Disk Diagnostic detected a S.M.A.R.T fault on disk OCZ-AGILITY3 ATA Device (volumes C:).This disk might fail;back up your computer now.All data on the hard disk, including files, documents, pictures, programs, and settings might be lost if your hard disk fails. To determine if the hard disk needs to be repaired or replaced, contact the manufacturer of your computer. If you can't back up (for example, you have no CDs or other backup media), you should shut down your computer and restart when you have backup media available.In the meantime, do not save any critical files to this disk. –  Jasiu Apr 7 '12 at 23:31

Needs to be 0. You have a bad SSD.

DR means "drive removable", 2 is the USB host controller ID assigned by Windows. So it is not your System drive that has problems but a removable drive you are attaching via USB.

Each usb port will be assigned a different number when being used, sorting out which is which is difficult.

Hmm the weird thing is I don't have any USB removable drives, all my drives are SATA –  Jasiu Apr 8 '12 at 2:10
    
Strange indeed. –  Moab Apr 8 '12 at 14:49
