    Is my Raptor on the way out.. Speedfan picture inc

    I am a little concerned that when Speedfan uses the SMART monitor it shows my Raptor hard drive at only 65%. Does this mean it's on its way out?

    Is the drive well ventilated? I've seen a lot of probs with corruption with raptors in badly ventilated shuttles.

    Speenfan uses the SMART data pulled from hard drives, its a nice little feature but i cant see it being something to worry about, remember when the first SMART drives came out and the early bios' used to flag up errors about them when they worked for years.

    If you're getting data corruption then I'd worry, else de-frag regularly & carry on as usual.
    But remember to back-up important docs rgularly or take regular disk images.
