Failing Shaw-supplied external hard drive

I think the Shaw-supplied external drive on my Gateway may be failing.



A couple weeks ago I noticed 75% of my recorded shows were missing.  I rebooted everything and it was asking me to format it.  After messing around with it a bit (without formatting) it seemed to fix itself. Now it's happening again. I'm tempted to just format it and see if that fixes it.



I understand Shaw doesn't supply external drives anymore.  This drive came from Shaw as a freebie when I got the Gateway.  If it ends up this thing is toast what happens?  Am I SOL and need to find my own drive?
