Hard Drive Has Lots Of Delays
using hddregenerator im doing a scan now and it has 10+ delays. I started scanning earlier and i didn't know it started in the middle and i let it scan for a bit and had 100 delays. So i know the longer it scans there will be 100+ delays.

What made me do all this was i was hearing some annoying noises *not really clicks* so i did the dischk on windows and all was well ( no noise during this scan or the one im doing now)

And the hd didnt have any activity prior to all of this either

Just curious is to know how bad this is?

Go to the Drive manufacturers website and download their diagnostic program. This would be more definitive than a Windows Disc Check.

If you have that many problems, the drive is toast. HDDRegenerator is just a scam that unmarks bad clusters for use again, only to have them fail to hold data and result in lost files.

Every time you test the drive, it will have more problems.

Buy a new drive.

You create bootable media for the diagnostics and run it from your optical drive at boot up.

download this http://www.hitachigst.com/hdd/suppor...2_v416_b00.iso insert a cdr into your optical drive, then burn the ISO file to the cdr. Do not install it on your computer, do not just copy the file to the CDR. After the cdr is burned, make sure your boot sequence has the Optical Drive as first boot device the boot sequence. boot the computer with the disc in your optical drive. It will run independant of the OS installed on the computer. It doesn't matter what Version of windows (32bit or 64bit) you have it will run on its own.

does this cause any problems when running the computer? delays are inevitable and depend on the transient period in most electronic applications. the 2tb size is known to be quite faulty, they drop like flies, the only one i know that works well is a western digital caviar black. expensive it may be but it does store things and fast.

well like Ive said it doesn't get that much activity and its new so i haven't really seen any performance issues. i just started hearing small random clicks one day and decided to scan it all out and figure out whats going on and i don't really wanna go back to using it if its just gonna crap out on me at any time
