“My computer’s running slow…” Is a complaint we hear all to often. Usually it’s malware or the accumulation of years worth of crud in the fan, but every now and again it’s the sign that your hard drive may be failing.
Here, we are using manufacturer’s diagnostic software to check the hard drive in this Compaq laptop, and it’s picked up 12 errors before getting to 1% complete. The diagnosis? A failing hard drive.
Hopefully we’ll be able to rescue this customer’s data before the drive fails completely, and this customer sadly does not have a backup!
