    I have a seagate 1tb drive that has been nothing but issues. I have RMA'ed this drive once before as it crashed. Now it has again and it wont let me reformat. It's not under warranty as I have a RMA drive. Any help would be nice. I have never ran anything other than microsoft security essentials and recently got AVG antivirus just to be sure im safe. I dont go to any odd sites really as this is a gaming computer and I dont want to browse the internet with it. Thanks for all the help!

    Seagates warranty on a RMA drive

    Q. How long is the limited warranty for the replacement drive?
    A. The remainder of the original limited warranty or 90 days, whichever is longer.

    which should i run? I have never had 2 but recently i talked with a computer lady and she said i could use both as i thought that was a nono.... 90 days is out and i've had the drive for over 4 years probably (that's the time of purchase for the first drive not the rma'ed drive)..

    Yes just use MSE
    I always get my ssd ( boot drive) just the way I like it ( music,photos,programs etc)
    Then buy another ssd and CLONE IT
    That way any problems you can connect the clone and u are running in 2 minutes
