Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
What are the reasons for a Hard Disk Failure? How can I save my hard disk from failing?
I have Hard Disk Drive Inspector installed. I alerts me that:
The temperature of the hard disk is 49 Deg.
My hard disk is going to fail on 23/6/2008.
I hear a sparkling sort of noise from my computer speakers.
My CPU Fan is very noisy.
Replace your fan. The fan is most likely cause of noise in speakers and can cause premature failure of your hard drive. Drive inspector takes into account the 49C reading when predicting failure. Your fan can be replaced inexpensively, even if you have to replace your whole power supply. Typically this is just a plug-in. Anyone can do it.
While pagebor is correct, "...it will fail one day.", it doesn't have to be the 23rd and could easily last many years. Often, most drives fail from non-use. I leave mine on 24hrs a day and have not had a failure in 15 years. Oh, by the way, I've replaced the fans in these systems about 3 times in that same period.

As the hard drive have movable parts it will fail one day.
If you defragement your hard drive monthly then it will take good care of your hard drive.
As the inspector is saying you should be ready for failure of your hard drive and you should back up your data.
