  1. I have 2 seagate barracuda 80 gig hard drives. One with an operating system Win XP Pro and the other without. i just use this as a backup drive. i have had to remove it due to the fact it keeps locking my pc up. I have reformatted the drive and checked for bad sectors. has anyone any idea while this drive keeps doing this. Both drives i bought together just over a year ago.
