Seagate Drive Failing?

  1. I have a Seagate 320gb SATA Perpendicular Recording drive, and I'm fairly certain that it must be failing, the signs are as follows: Data Corruptions in certain files (not consistent areas), disk defrag will get to 96% and NEVER finish, when I bought the drive in november, it did a lot of clicking for a new drive.

    Given these things, could the drive have faulty sectors, or be failing?

    Thanks a lot!
