Windows 7: Unusual Hard Disk Activity in Resource Monitor

Do you think it will last me another year? I know this is probably way too vague and hard to answer, but I'm curious how much life my hard drive has left.

Well thats really subjective...

it might be years before it dies or maybe in a month or two... I cant predict

Your raw count is at 82... which is pretty close to 100..... you can keep an eye on this every once in a while... if it increases to higher level... its better to backup your stuff and get a new harddrive...

Besides maybe chkdsk, is there any way to prolong the life of the harddrive?

Thank you for your help today. Many applications used to ysbe so slow until I disabled that process. I removed the things you told me to and everything is better although windows is still laggy. Except for replacing the hard drive, is there anything else from my logs that is problematic?

ran chkdsk (haven't ran it for a while) and restarted computer...it's now up to 84

Maybe it's time for me to replace it...

To double check if my hard drive was malfunctioning, I ran SeaTools Long Generic test. Sure enough, it failed. I am backing up all my files and then replacing it.

Thanks again centaur!

Disk activity not showing up in Resource Monitor?
I've noticed that Windows Media Player is thrashing my hard drive whenever I play videos, so I tried to investigate with Resource Monitor. The "Processes with Disk Activity" pane shows it reading about 4Mb/s, but there's nothing to show for it in the "Disk Activity" pane. Any ideas what's up?
