I know - it has happened to me - TWICE - this year.
I lost my hard drive twice this year - having to buy a new computer the first time, then cash in on its warranty the next. Neither time is there any explanation - all that computer techs have told me is that the hard drive, in both situations, had a major crash. I don't peruse dangerous websites and my teenagers aren't allowed to use my computers - so we have no idea why it happened, other than the suggestion that as I travel frequently, the laptops might have been jarred or dropped.
