I recently began having problems with "Overlapped Extent Allocation" errors on my hard drive on my "Late 2010" MacBook Air. When it first happened, I formatted the drive, reinstalled OSX 10.7, and restored my data. Within a month or so, the drive was corrupted again with the same errors. So, I replaced the hard drive, reinstalled OSX, and restored my data. Now, only a couple weeks after doing this, I am having the same problem yet again. What could be causing this to happen so frequently?

The replay answer
Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, I've already replaced the drive and it's doing the same thing on the new drive. I suppose it's possible that I got a bad drive, but it's hard to imagine it having exactly the same error as the previous drive.
