I was playing around with the idea of a new hard drive recently. I downloaded the trial version of HD Tune pro to try it's health utility and got this.

It gives me a whole bunch of errors like this on both my Seagate drives.
I downloaded Seatools for windows and ran it on both. Both passed no problems.
I downloaded Passmark's disk checkup utility and they both pass no problems.

So now, I don't know what to do. Is HD Tune more reliable than the others at predicting failure?

The weird thing with HD tune is that if I manually refresh the test, it normally says everything is ok. Left on it's own to refresh every minute, it gives these errors.

Any help is much appreciated.
