Depends. Are you talking deleted files, corrupted files, or a drive that's physically having problems (knocking, grinding, etc.)?

If a standard "chkdsk /r" from the recovery console doesn't help, usually manufacturer's utilities (i.e. Maxtor's MaxBlast) are about the only other options that I've ever found will help.

You should be able to check online if you have the serial number. I never call anyone on the phone unless I have to. But if you're a big fan of listening to elevator music for a few hours, go right ahead!

Go here to check warranty status (http://www.hitachigst.com/portal/site/en/?epi_menuItemID=4e6284c20a3050a7760062f6aac4f0a0&epi_menuID=9d9c342d03880f8056fb11f0aac4f0a0&epi_baseMenuID=3d0cb215112b6934ab937c27aac4f0a0)
