I downloaded the HD Tune. Its a great little program, thanks.

It found some damaged blocks or sectors (I am not sure what they are called) on one of the hard drives. Is there any better program than windows for fixing this?

bad sectors on hard drives cannot be fixed. The system will just mark them as bad, and never write data to those sectors again.

also, bad blocks tend to spread over time. You'd better get a new hard drive...

Seagate has a utility where you can look at the SMART data. Windows will actually notify you when your reach a point of where the drive will fail. Run seagates utility, if they determine it is bad. Go to seagates site and check to see if still in waranty. If so, do the rma and get a new one. Hopefuly you have one of the 5 yr models.

thats a pretty nifty utility, also keep in mind there is speedfan, which also adds this kind of functionality. As well as reading hard drive temps, among everything else you may need to do.

I used the online "seatools." When I do the quick test neither "seatools" nor " HD Tune" finds a problem. But they both find a problem doing the slow test.

After doing the online test, seatools tried to do an online rma but there was a problem:

I am an american living in Spain. I did the test on USA webpage may this caused the problem with the onlive rma. The drive is 80 gig seagate which sells on newegg for $40. I bought drive 14 months ago a local store here. This summer I am going to USA and I plan on buying one or two

I was planning on using the 2 80 gig harddrives in a family memberĀ“s computer.

Does Seagate charge shipping and if so, is it worth the hassle for a $40 drive.


Sorry for the long story
