  1. seagate rma is to send you a replacement drive of the same size. i would do an advance replacement so you can keep your old drive then do a disk copy. also as the drive two months old talk to the store let them know the drive was bad from day one. they may do an over the counter swap.
  2. Best answer
    Run Seatools diagnostics on it available from Seagate and if it fails it is RMA. I have done RMA with them before using their premium service, basically small fee they send you new drive and a return shipping label to send the broken one back!

    how can we procede on this method. i would like to have that procceder apply

    if i get new hard drive i can transfer all my stored data on hard Drive. and then send back that currepted hard drive for replace.

    this can really help me alot coz i dont have any place to store my data of that drive.

    i just run the Scan it showing me this - Short DST - FAIL

    Your Sea Tools Test Code is : ED67DCEA
    Fail Info
    Now is a good time to make sure you have a current backup of your important data.

    Unfortunately, your Seagate product has failed an important diagnostic test, possibly caused by problem sectors which are difficult to read. Seagate recommends that you run SeaTools for DOS, which has the ability to repair most problem sectors. SeaTools for DOS may be able to save you from the inconvenience and down time of exchanging the drive. For more information on this subject see our online FAQ:

    seatools test isn't passing, then get the HDD replaced. Seagate shouldn't have any issues with replacing a HDD that won't pass their own test. ? please Reply
  7. Next step is to file the RMA with them using the code http://www.seagate.com/about/contact-us/technical-support/ they will replace it.
