Read the post below. Thank you.
I understand it and spamming was not my intention. But my old post wasn't posted as it was waiting for review, idk why, I am not used threads and forums, sorry for the inconveniences.I've merged these two threads together. Please do not start more than one for the same issue.
Describe in detail what you mean by the drive giving you a hard time.my hard disk was giving me a hard time.
First of all thanks for taking your time to read and reply to my problem.Describe in detail what you mean by the drive giving you a hard time.
All hard drives have bad clusters. 1460 kb less than 2 MB is hardly worth worrying about on a 931+ GB (953,344 MB) hard drive. 2÷953344 is about .000002!
Well, it is a Seagate Barracuda 1 TB HDD, that's all I know. If you need more info, I can check and tell you.Since CHKDSK said 'No further action is required' I think it's safe to continue using that drive but I would run CHKDSK say once a week to see if it finds more bad clusters, if it does you should consider sending it back.
What make and model drive is it ?
Yes, I ran the Seatools, it passed S.M.A.R.T and short generic test but failed long generic and fix all and asked me to run Seatools bootable to try to fix the problem. I was like yeah, I'll use it as a last resort if I really need too before RMA-ing it.If it fails the Seagate diagnostics, Seagate is pretty good at replacing the drive if it is under warranty. At least they used to be 10-15 years ago when I used Seagates ... You can go through the RMA process online and may have an option for an advance exchange (where they send you a replacement before you send in the defective drive, but you may have to provide a credit card number, in case you renege).
