Ive had to replace the hard drive of a customer twice in 9 months, both times it was corruption, unrecoverable read errors etc,the hard drives were definitely capoot.I fixed them with the usual tools and would get them back up and running for a while until it happened again,the shop where i purchased them from replaced them when i had proof of the damaged hard drives with printouts from some of the tools i use.
Now the customers 3rd hard drive in a year is corrupt,ive done a quick check but i have more to do but its coming back (one or more unrecoverable read errors), now this is the worst problem ive ever had building systems,never have i had so much trouble with this one computer.
Now my question is, is there more than one way of getting corrupt hard drives,can other hardware parts cause corruption,because i cant understand how 3 drives in a year is possible,this one is only 2-3 months old.
the hard drives were mostly Maxtor i know there not the greatest hard drives in the world but trouble with them has been minmal except for this comp.
Just to recooperate the question is [is there more than one way of getting corrupt hard drives]
