Thank you, guys. It wasn't the 'primary' (the 70GB Maxtor with the WHS OS), it was, oddly, one of the 500GB storage disks. Both of which are Seagate Barracudas and both have now failed (much has been written about those already, I believe). Fortunately, the people who sold them to me are taking now both back and replacing them with a later, improved version.
Just as well I had the data backed-up to an external drive...
