My 2nd HD has just started to drop off the face of the earth. One minute its there and then the next it isn't.
Every time I reboot its back and everything seems very happy then when ever it feels like it .. pooooof no sign of it on my computer or the device manager.
On its last scan by HP Hardware diagnostic tools it failed the random and funnel seek tests on one sector.
Is this HD starting to fail or is it a software problem?
