Basically, want you guys to lie to me. Tell me everything's A-OK.

My Samsung HD204UI 2TB,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152245

has sector errors, and problems. Everytime I try to access a file it hangs, freezes my computer, I've tried different ports, different SATA power cables, and each time it either freezes, works fine for 30 seconds, or I get a Windows Error.
I've tried updating the firmware, made it worst, than found out I had the better firmware when it arrived from the factory. Also, can't find the HDD Manufacturing date for the life of me.

Any suggestions? I just wanna back up my 1.35TB of my files or a temp fix so I can wipe it, and possibly RMA it.

Grab the trial of HDTune Pro and check the Health tab. Post a screenshot of all the SMART info there.

Are you willing to attempt bootable tools, or do you want a way to pull your stuff off from Windows?

If limited to Windows... you need a smarter File Copy program than what's built-in. Try TeraCopy:
http://www.codesector.com/teracopy.php

It's designed for copying terabytes of files. It doesn't seem to mind waiting for drives to unfreeze. I/O errors shouldn't stop it - it'll just notify you at the end that a few files didn't make it. Then you can retry those files or ignore them. Give it a shot and see if it can cope with your HDD, or if your HDD is too far gone. If it works, no need to break out the bootable tools. If it doesn't... let us know and we'll try to come up with other methods.

Thanks Kramy.

Here's my Screenshot.

It kept lagging/stuttering my computer but here it is;



I'll try TeraCopy, I actually had a copy but uninstalled it because of problems!

Thanks, I also have CrystalDiskInfo if that helps.

Yeah, that drive is well on its way to being dead. Read Errors, Write Errors, Bad Sectors. frown.gif

The Data column is the column to pay attention to - 01, 05, C4, C5, C8 indicate failure.

I hope you're able to get off what you need. If copying doesn't work, there is a cmdline tool called ddrescue which can be run from bootable Linux CDs (such as SystemRescueCD) - I'll track down a link and instructions if you want me to.

If you could, TeraCopy crashed twice, and third time it's stuck at 2.49% in transferring of 400GB worth of files.
