Have got a 7200 rpm IBM 80 Gig hard disk. Recently have been getting a high pitched whine from it - doesn't last long then goes away. Should I be worried - I'vre heard that these drives are prone to failure - mine is 10 months old but used 12 hours a day or more.

I would suggest that you get another hdd and return this one. Better safe than sorry as they say. At the very least, keep your backups up to date.
