Dead drive yay!

Yay dead drive!




This one was a sneaky one. I didn't know i was about to suffer a drive failure until another HDD decided it didnt like its cable and started throwing errors that immediately cleared up after the cable was replaced. Did self tests across all the drives, all of them came out clean except for this one which failed the test, and detected 14 weak sectors. Im now up to 51 and rapidly rising. Most of the data on the drive that i wanted to keep has been recovered. In the meantime, firefox is locked up from the errors the failed drive is spewing out for no reason at all, and any music or video playing will periodically freeze for half a second or so, every second.

So umm yeah, drive died, and my computer is freaking out hard because of it.

Yeah the drive is well and truly toast. My computer was freaking out to the point where the cursor was glitching out and crome and firefox were both almost entirely unresponsive. Needless to say the drive is now gone from my rig and everything is business as usual.... hopefully.

And HD Sentinel is the go-to program for hard disk health. I have yet to find better.
