I have an encrypted external USB drive, but I am considering buying an SSD tomorrow. Might as well if this disk is going to hell.

Well, what do you know, it started happening again: the BSoD's. Faster reboots afterwards this time so I could never see the cause and there are rarely any minidumps. Anyway, I began dancing the...
