    ive been getting this error in Windows Vista that says my Hardrive has errors on it and needs to be backed up but i dont know which Hardrive it is. Primary Drive is a 500gb drive and the second drive is a 1.5tb drive with all my media on it, how do i find out which one is failing? im running a defragmenter on it right now

    the makers of the drives all have diagnostic tests you can run on them, that would be a good start.
