My question: Can a disk controller corrupt hard disks?
I ask this because I Have had 3 hard disks "go bad" and then become inaccessible over as many weeks. Is it possible that the (SATA) disk controller or something else is destroying the hard disks?
I don't believe that it's software (e.g. virus) that's doing this because I can audibly hear the disk "struggling" before it finally dies.
