Try to read my mails and take care about Hartmut's replies. The SMART
attributes/IDs #1 and #7 are bad! And there is a firmware warning too.

GVFS btw. can damage HDDs seriously! It does cause spin down and ups for
"Green" drives. This is seemingly not the case for Hartmut's HDD, but we
couldn't know this and the HDD anyway seems to be broken.
