Can it really be that my hard drive is failing that is not even 2 years old??
My Lenovo came with a ST9500325AS, and recently failed the targeted read test and the smart short shelf test. Of all the laptops that I have owned, I have never had to replace a drive- and it seems I now must. My laptop is out of warranty- does that mean I am SOL and just have to buy a replacement for this drive?
Could I have done something that caused this? Seems the first failure reading happened in Dec (just noticed it yesterday).
Any help or suggestions....
