    Yesterday I installed my new Samsung HD502HJ drive. I cloned my old drive onto this one using dd on an Ubuntu Live CD. So after returning into Windows 7 RC, it starts popping up messages telling me that the drive is going to fail soon. I thought this might have been due to using dd to clone the old drive so I did a fresh install of W7.

    Everything was going fine for a day until I hibernated the computer. After it came back on, the same message came back. To figure this out, I ran HD Tune. It did a full scan and came back without any errors or issues. It also says the health of the drive is ok. Plus I can't say that I've seen any files come up missing or corrupted yet. And the drive is already super silent so there's no clicking or ticking.

    Do you guys think this is a real faulty drive or just a false positive of some kind? My system:

    Mobo: ASRock K10N78M
    CPU: AMD Athlon X2 7850BE
    RAM: x2 PQI 2GB DDR2-800
    DVD: Lite-On SHW-160P6S
