Hi,i have problem with 4 years(9th August will be 5 years) old Hitachi hds721025CLA382 HHD it is 250 GB,i made it into 2 partition C(78) and E(155),But for some reason my E partition is really slow when i test the benchmark it have 0.0 mb/s read(hasn't finished because error) i actually never use the E one but recently i download some games+ video and move it there.This is the screenshoot(until 78 it still have good speed but the rest mostly filled with 0.0mb/s):



and i have 5 blocks of error:


Is there anything i can do except buying new one(except there is no other way )also it still have about 80% free.I tried Defragment and it never finished, i also do check disk about 30 hours long and never finished too.Thank you

Run Checkdisk /f (fix) and see if it helps

Check it with Seatools (or the Hitachi equivalent)

30 hrs! Then I think your drive is faulty and should be replaced.

yup , definately time to replace the HDD , i would suggest though before it dies to backup any important data stored on it while you can

If you want fast you should get an ssd for the os, programs and games. Anything else should go on a hdd "storage" drive
