Is my hard drive going to die ? Any test I can run to check that ?
Depends... Is this happening frequently? Or is it a one-time thing?
If it happens a lot, you probably should think about backing up your
data and getting ready to replace the disk.
If it's a one-off, you can probably not worry about it. There are
lots of transient things that could cause this kind of event:
temperature, vibration, cosmic-rays (seriously, a random alpha
particle can cause a bit to flip in RAM), and so on...
Does that help?
