windows 7 hard disk failure notification

I am using an intel SS DSA2M160G2GC drive and received a warning from Windows 7 saying that Windows has detected an error in the hard drive and that I should backup it immediately and call the support. It says (not in english): "the following disks are reporting failure: intel SS DSA2M160G2GC SCSI Disk Device". The system is Dell XPS Studio 1340, running Windows 7 home premium 64bit.


In addition, on trying to run Norton Ghost 15 drive backup I get the following error message:

"-Unable to create incremental recovery point.

--Error E7C3000F: Device \\?\SymantecSnapshot0 cannot read 4472 sectors starting at LBA 132412680.

---Error EBAB03F1:

לא היתה אפשרות לבצע את הבקשה עקב שגיאה של התקן פלט/קלט.



the translation of the message is "there was no possibility of processing the request due to an error in input/output device".

I am able to reproduce this error message every time I run the drive backup using Norton Ghost.


This is the first time I am having these error messages. The drive worked perfectly for the past few months since I bought it.


Can I solve this problem by using chkdsk or by writing zeros to the the whole drive?


I will be grateful for your help.
