Rogue77777 October 7, 2009 2:55:45 PM If the drive is still working and you have some important info on it, get it off ASAP. Once you've ran all of your test and you're sure that it working porperly, you can start storing data on it again. Until then I wouldn't take any chances. drtanz October 7, 2009 11:22:10 PM i tried running a test using the WD diagnostics but it couldnt complete, here is the screenshot http://tinyurl.com/yed9zvq drtanz October 7, 2009 11:22:28 PM drtanz October 7, 2009 11:23:01 PM In the image its the one which has the smart status displaying FAIL drtanz October 8, 2009 9:41:11 AM those are the results im getting from diagnostics, else everything is fine, no bad sectors etc 4745454b a b G Storage October 8, 2009 10:12:46 AM Dying drive, it happens.
