A few days ago i bought a new hard disk for my laptop and decided to keep the old one as a backup storrage device. Since my laptop doesn't have two hard disk slots i bought a special caddy and installed the backup hard disk on the DVD-Writer slot.
Everything went ok, until last night when the backup hard disk suddenly started having problems.
Relocated sectors 128 Relocated event count 7 Current pending sectors 512 ( 400 last night )
The drive has been online for about 300 days.
The faulty Hard drive is Toshiba 5400rpm 500gb
