You must have purchased a drive with a 1 year warrantee if not I would
complain to the vendor that sold you the drive. Current drives have 1,
3 or 5 year warrantees and you normally pay a little more for the
longer warrrantee. I only pruchase drives with 5 year warrantees but I
guess if any of them died 4 to 5 years from the purchase date I
probably would not even want a replacement as the drive would  be very
slow and small compared to what was current.
