Default potential harddisk failure?

I got a harddisk that produced errors booting windows and needed several restarts to boot properly.

It passed regular scandisk abut it hung itslef up defragmenting the C: drive at 23%, however it could defrag E:. Now the install is FUBAR.

I tried changing the SATA port and checked that the cable is not bendt.

Could the Harddisk be faulty or is it just the install (Seagate HD, 2.5 years old)?
