    Post ALL of your exact system specs; ie exact mb, exact cpu, etc, etc. Seagate makes a lot of 1TB drives; again post the exact seagate you are using. Is this connected via usb, network connection, what?

    Hi swpna,

    As crjdriver suggested it would be really helpful if you provide more information about your system and the exact drives you are using. As some general advice I can recommend testing the drives with the manufacturers diagnostics tool. As for the external drive you could test it with a different cable and in a different PC. After doing the extended diagnostics tests you can post the SMART data here. Another thing to do would be to make sure that all your drivers are up to date.

    Keep us posted,
