Not so SMART numbers

I'm getting a few errors and warnings from atapi and disk in the event log (and those are ones that you really don't want to see). Hmm.

Delayed Write Failed : Windows was unable to save all the data for the file \Device\HarddiskVolume1\Program Files\WindowsUpdate\wuaudnld.tmp\cabs\com_microsoft.894320_W2K_SP5_x86_WinSE_154269\Windows2000-KB894320-x86-ENU.EXE. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection. Please try to save this file elsewhere.
