Is my D: Hard drive dying?

I have a 3 Tb hard drive, HGST Ultrastar 7K3000 HUA723030ALA640 (0F12456) 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprisel Hard Drive Bare Drive,

and i bought it like 6-10 months ago maybe, but now its failing on me,

couple days ago, it was being stupid, lot of the files in it weren't working, like pics and videos, some videos work but some didn't just start anymore like they were dead, for pics, same thing, and it becomes so slow, loading files and everything, when i go to my computer, where it shows all of my drives, when i click on d hard drive, it takes a while to get in, but before it got slow and messed up, it would give me " the request could not be performed because of an i/o device error " when i click the drive but i restart my pc and it can go back in the d drvie but then the files get messed up and the d hard drive becomes very slow

, so i formatted it ( not quick format ) and its good, empty of course but now its doing it again and its been only 1 day since formatting! my main C drive which is a 1TB WD, works fine, also these are my specs, and i hear people say that WD ( Western digital ) are the best but do i need to get a new hard drive now because i need more room for games and videos, is the D hard drive failing? should i just throw it away?

  1. An I/O error anywhere on any platter-driven hard-drive normally cannot be "forever" fixed. An internal drive replacement, along with a solid backup routine (that involves an external drive), is probably, in my guess, the best long-term solution.

    So just get a new drive? I'm thinking of getting this https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-Expansion-Desktop-External-STEB8000100/dp/B01HAPGEIE

  3. Looks good to me, others here might offer up alternatives :)
    And, forget not a routine backup process using an external hard-drive or two.

  4. Just one thing...
    You do understand, don't you, that the Seagate is a USB external HDD and not designed as an internally-connected HDD? That's fine as long as you understand it's a USB external drive, capiche?

  5. ArtPog, thanks for the heads-up! I failed to notice that until you mentioned it.
