For mac users I also reccomend a program called SMART reporter

all hard drive have S.M.A.R.T.onboard to tell us of their current health i.e if they are failing.OSX unfortunatley does'nt like to pass this info on.Smart reporter will either create a pop up alert or send you an email when it thinks the drive is failing..its free as well
