    :) HDD failure can creep up on you from the shadows sometimes. Test your HDD with one of the utilities here.

    Make sure you use a controlled shutdown every time and do not force power off by holding the power switch.

    If you must force power off, then be sure to run chkdsk /f upon reboot

    Your exposure increases if you have Shared Folders, one is being accessed, and
    either system is forced off or crashes.

    On a fat32 filesystem, this would have lead quickly to cross linked files, but ntfs is
    much better and has far fewer errors.
