When you reformat make sure you do it the good way i call it. There is a quick and long format. The quick one takes no time but might not solve your problems. This happened to me before and I had to go back and do it the long way where you have to write 0's to the array and the whole process takes a couple of hours.:no:

There is no reason that the quick format won't solve the problem, whatever is left on the disk is totally ignored after the directories are rebuilt by the format. I really doubt that a long format had anything to do with your problem unless you had actual bad sectors on the disk.

Low level format distrys the disk. but it does wipe it. Depending on the disk utility you used. Still Low level is low level. You will probably be buying another hardrive in about 6 months. Until then goood luuuck:rolleyes:
