It sounds like a faulty hard drive but I have no reason for why other then just a failed head. It does happen from time to time and someone has to be the one who gets it. Seeing as it is less then half a year old I would see about getting it repaired though warrenty.

HDD dead, so off for repair.

"It's got an entire organisation's vtal working data on there! What a joke"

Sorry to say I disagree, 3 weeks may seem like a long time, but the joke would be not having all that important data on backup.
