SOURCE: Dell Dimension E521 bad sectors
Hard to believe but this can be common depending on the manufacturer of the hard drive as some are not that good at all, some Maxtor's for example.
The best hard drives you can buy at the moment are Western Digital and Seagate, these drives come with 3 - 5 years guarantee so if they develop bad sectors they will replace the the drives free.
The best way to look after your drives is to perform a sector check once a month and keep your internet cache cleared, use a program called Ccleaner to clear the cache and temp files and also keep the registry clean.
I would also recommend you defragment your drive as soon as you have installed a clean operating system or defrag once a month too, that way you will get your full life from the hard drive.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Testimonial: "whould this CPU work with my dell? REALLY I NEED TO KNOW"
Some computers can be slow or short of hard drive space for quite simple reasons.
Windows and other program hide temporary files in lots of different places
The best option is not always a program or utility and if you want to do as much as you can for FREE like I do then you have a few options.
1. First you need to be in windows explorer.
2. Click TOOLS and FOLDER OPTIONS
3. Now click the VIEW tab
4. Tick the Show Hidden Files And Folders option
Unpick Hide Protected Operating System Files (it may warn you but you can ignore it)
5. Click APPLY then OK
6. NOTE some files may not delete this is OK Also DO NOT DELETE the folder itself where mentioned for cleaning.
7. Using windows explorer go into the WINDOWS folder and look for a directory called TEMP (it is possible there may be more than one)
8. Select all the contents and delete them. Do the same for any other temp folder e.g. temp000
9. Now navigate to Documents and Settings
There are quite a few folders in here that can be cleaned up
10. Look for folders named "Local Settings" In there you will find more TEMP folders that can be cleaned out
11. Now look inside the Temporary Internet Files. Delete anything EXCEPT cookies. Otherwise passwords for some sites you have stored may need you to type the password again.
12. Do this for each user / profile you see.
13. Now check the C: drive itself and see if there are any Temp folders and clean those out too
To prevent accidental deletion of any files windows needs you should go back to step (4) and change the two settings back to their original
Hope this gives you the information you need
It would be very decent of you to consider the quality of our experts answers and judge them accordingly as you pass through FixYa.
