[SATLUG] Bittorrent and Hard drive failure

While doing  large bit torrent download, I've had two hard drives to 
fail during or within days thereof.  I've googled  and there appears to 
be some concern that a failure maybe caused by excessive  Hdrive usage. 
I have used Dban software, a disk wipe program, that read/write the 
Hdrive for hours with no failures. I wonder if any of you have had a 
similar experience.
