More about : potential problem hard drive Codesmith September 27, 2005 10:11:21 PM Too much detail for me. I prefer utilities that give me a simple pass/fail. I use Seagates Online test to check Smart Status and run a complete Drive Self Test. That or if rebooting is convient the maker utility found on the latest version of ultimate boot cd. I suggest you run a DST however anyway you feel like and use the same utility to check the smart status. If everything passes then you know the problems are not serious, if it fails then you know they are. colbert341 September 29, 2005 2:38:38 AM thanks for the advice,i'm gonna try the western digital diagnostic tools and see what it tells me.From now on i'm gonna make my backup more frequently just to be on the safe side.
