Re: HDD Formating
Download and run the disk manufacturer's test utility. These are usually a
bootable CD image and/or a floppy based version.
You should also test your memory, first with Vista's utility, but memtest
will do a more exacting test.
There is no limit in principle to how often a disk can be formatted. In this
case I think you have a hardware problem, which is most likely to be disk or
system memory related.
