Assumed disk failure?

I have a mailscanner box (centos 5) running MailScanner 4.74.16. I am
getting the below error over and over again in the maillog:

Database complained about this: disk I/O error(10) at dbdimp.c line 271.
I suggest you delete your
/var/spool/MailScanner/incoming/SpamAssassin.cache.db file and let me
re-create it for you


I have deleted (moved the file) and I continue to get these errors.


The computer is crawling right now and the i/o does not seem high enough
to cause this.


I am assuming I have a disk going bad and needs replacement? Is there
any hope or should I just replace the drive? I am almost certain that I
have replaced the drive in this unit less than a year ago due to drive


Any suggestions would be great.
