Strange thing is I've tested the drive with the drive maker's diagnostic software and it passes all the tests - go figure.
For your peace of mind I would test the drive as I have done. You'll need to find out who the drive maker is (Device Manager should give you a clue. For example, if the part number starts with 'ST' it will be a Seagate drive, and if it starts with 'WD' it will be made by Western Digital).
Go to that manufacturer's website, click on 'Support' or 'Downloads' and they will have a free diagnostic tool you can make a bootable CD with.
But whatever you do, make backups of all your documents, music, pictures etc. before you do anything else, as soon as possible in case the drive does finally bite the dust.
