Hard Disk slowing down.

  prince midas 11:27 28 Dec 06

I have found that my hard disk is taking 40 mins after a complete reformat to do a 5 gig copy which previously took 10 mins.
I used the Maxtor hard disk utility which tells me I have 300 hours left on it which according to my suppier means it is still working & cannot be replaced under guarantee.
Is this in order as 300 hours is about 10 weeks by my usage & by then my guarantee will have expired.

If it says 300 hours left then it's knackered. Try running disk degrag a few time on it to break it as soon as possible.

I know you have another drive so your data should be safe providing it's on this working drive.
