This is how you tell if your harddrive is dead or on it’s deathbed. Also Linus walks through what to avoid in order to prolong the life of your hard drive. Finally, we suggest that users use SMART in order to test and keep up to date on the status of their drives. HD Sentinel is a great way to keep track of this automatically and it can warn you when something is wrong, or about to go wrong. It can even give you an estimated lifespan remaining on your drive, listed in number of days.
