Was exploring the issue with the Western Digital Green Hard Drives and there is a fix out there to help stop the drives from failing all the time.
What you need is a utility called WDIDLE3. You will need to run this from dos. I followed a Youtube video of what a person posted. What happens is the Intellipark software parks the head of the drive every 8 seconds.

When you use the utility they say to increase it to 300 seconds with this command:

wdidle3 /s300

The person in the video is not me, FYI.
