Subject: [THIN] OT: Laptop Disk Failing?

Hi All,

  The hard drive on my 3-month old Dell laptop seems to be really
bogging
down at times (WinXP Pro). When it lags a bit, I'll pop up Task Manager
and
look at CPU on all processes, but don't see anything. It does seem to be
related to reading/wring files, listing large directories, etc. I
thought I
might find some counters in Perfmon that I could watch for read/write
errors
on the drive, but didn't see any. Any pointers for proactively assessing
the
health of the drive? (And yeah, I backed up immediately!)
