******************************************


Recommendation:
All selected physical diagnostics passed.

If you are not experiencing data loss and SeaTools reports File
System Structure errors, they may be caused by a lock-up or
failure to shutdown Windows correctly. Many times, these errors
may be repaired through normal system maintenance which
includes using the Windows provided "Defrag" and
"Scandisk / Chkdsk / Error Checking" utilities.

If you are experiencing a hardware error, you should isolate
the cause and replace the failing component. If you are unsure how
to proceed with repairs, contact a computer professional. After
completing any maintenance tasks, run SeaTools again to
verify that all errors have been repaired. If errors continue to
occur, the system may not be stable. Again, contact a computer
professional.

The diagnostics of the hardware aspect of the HDD was OK, so are the errors being written to the drive because the errors are in the data being written to the HDD in the first place?

This needs to be ruled out as a possibility, errors written to the drive initially can come from Optical Drive [CDROM, DVDROM, CDRW, DVDRW, Whatever] reading errors or Memory errors, I would thoroughly test the RAM for errors and exclude it as a problem. You can use Memtest 86 to test the RAM and get it <A HREF="http://www.bootdisk.com/utility.htm" target="_new"> here </A> toward the bottom of the page.
