Question about Seagate 500GB REPLICA USB 20 16MB 25IN COMPLETE PC BACKUP SYSTEM 500 GB Hard Drive
First, extract all data that you have on the hard-drive, while you still can.
Seagate's web-site suggests that you first download and run Seagate's "Drive Fitness Tool", which exercises the disk-drive, and produces a "fitness" report. If it fails, then delete all your "private" files, and either take the drive back to the retail location where you bought it, or get an RMA (Return Materials Authorization) from Seagate, to get permission from Seagate to return the drive to them, for them to analyze the disk, and probably replace it.
