Is this hard drive failing? - Page 3

Not likely as this install was done after I got the new set. I memtested the new set and it showed no errors.

LOL, I've read the same about WD drives.
And it is 2 yrs now, just like the caviar blues and the XTs have 3yr. I use both WD and Seagate and Hitachi and Samsung. There are good drive models and bad ones. Stating one brand is so much better than another is just bias.

Yes it's the OS drive, I have it partitioned with 1Tb as C and the remaining as D. That makes sense, I opened up explorer a couple of times while the bench was running just to see if I could replicate the hangs that I was getting before, and couldn't.

Gotta love companies that reduce their warranty period rather than fix the processes that cause failing drives.

I guess it was the chipset drivers or the SATA port, but it's definitely running like it should now and assuming the SMART data is all good I guess it's fixed.

Thanks again for all the help and fast responses.

Pay attention to the Data column. You've got zero spin retries... HDTune just highlighted it yellow for some strange reason.

Your drive looks fine. If I had to guess why you have those massive downward spikes, I'd say...
1) It's your OS drive. Other software could be interrupting it. Run HDTune in safemode if you want to confirm that. (Less software interfering.)
2) These new Seagate drives are quite susceptible to vibrations. Is yours mounted on rubber grommets, or straight metal to metal?

Yeah I was wondering about the highlighted rows as well. Will HDTune say something other than OK if there are any retries?

I'll go ahead and try it in safe mode. I'm on my main rig right now though, so I'll have to wait.

Yes it's mounted on rubber grommets in a corsair 600T and sitting on a desk, I can't imagine it much more stable.

I tried to replicate the sharp drop with my main rig and this is what I got on C drive. This may be comparing apples to oranges since it's a raid 0 array with two WD raptor 10,000 RPM drives but here it is. From 20-25% is where I was accessing files on the drive.

For comparison this is a 1Tb WD Caviar Black that I use for storage, I wasn't accessing the drive at all during this bench.

This is just to show that the drive is fine. Here is my F3 when it was acting weird.



I did a full backup and format and it was all better after. Software can act weird sometimes. thumb.gif

I have a cavi blue do the exact same thing and I thought it was toast. But I did what Sean said and reformated it and it was good to go. Still chugging along with 9000+ hours.

Full backup as in format and restore with an image? Or just backed up your data and did a fresh install?

I don't know if I can handle another format and re-installing all my games and software doh.gif but if you guys have all had the same issues and suggest it I suppose I probably should.

Nah, that was a bench with it as a secondary. No OS on it. You have no need to reinstall, you're fine.

Awesome, you have no idea how glad I am to hear that. It may not seem like a big deal, but I've been jacking with this rig for a couple of months. Every single component has fought me every step of the way. I ended up with a bad motherboard which I thought was a bad set of memory, so I returned the good set of memory and ended up with a a bad board AND a bad set of memory. After finally getting a new board and yet again another set of memory, I ended up here. So the prospects of a failing drive, or even as little as having to format it AGAIN, had me tearing my hair out.

So, as I said before, THANK YOU. I've never been more relieved to be done with a build in my life.

no prob, however, like every PC build make sure you always have a backup plan just in case and monitor the SMART data every now and then. thumb.gif
