Hi Charles,

I also had a machine that destroyed hard disks. After replacing the hard
disk for the second time, I finally noticed that the power supply fan was
not spinning. In that machine, the hard disk was next to the power supply.
I think the hot power supply was damaging the hard disk. I replaced the
fan and that machine has been running well for over two years.
