some consolation, my drive was under warranty I got my cash back, and bought 2 x 2TB
nothing to see here move along....
of a hard drive is the main killer of one! You should do what most people have never heard of....LEAVE YOUR COMPUTER ON!
And make sure:
'Turn off the Hard Disk after (Never)' and Put the computer to sleep (Never)
My PC has been running 4 months without turning off. I have 1x500GB 2x1TB and 1x2TB all running 24/7.
PS: What brand was your beloved 2TB?
Also just to confirm is the following all I would need in terms of hardware:
-Coolermaster RC-120A-KKN1 , Elite 120 advance mini-iTX gaming cube case with 2x expansion slots - 240x207x401mm , black with silver aluminum finish front panel , No psu , with cable management , support upto 343mm long vga card , 1x front usb3.0 + 2x usb2

this thread just reminded me why i have 3x 80gb hdds backed up in my cupboard, each labeled for their purposes.
and then a 500gb samsung and a 80gb split for windows and critical backups. and then ofcourse ... bluray backup for those "long term files"
sorry for your loss OP, 2TB is a hard nail to swallow lol ... ouchy
i sometimes do defrags and do disk doctor checks , do these actually help ?
