Dead HDD!!!

Normal life of a hard disk should be 5 years, but when I tried to boot up my Windows XP machine this morning, I couldn't get further than the Windows startup screen, at which, the computer will restart. A quick check indicated one of the partition (happens to be the C:!!!!) was dead. The old HDD was a Maxtor 160Gb. Luckily a backup was made, but at least a month old, so 3-4 weeks of information was probably not updated. So its going to be a long process to get a new HDD up and running and to get all standard information and PDAs up and running again... Sigh...
