    No wonder it ran for 2 years. Are you using this machine frequently at
    all? :)

    This is exactly the mistake I've been meaning to warn you of.
    The disk will corrupt sooner or later again and you'll have to go
    through all the torture (possible backup/restore, missing data) again
    and if you're unlucky (which is quite possible with your frequency of
    use) the warranty is void until the problems appear the next time.
