Seagate seatools is what you want to use to correctly troubleshoot your drive, http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/seatools/

Run SMART test and short self under basic tests, will let you right away if there is anything wrong with the drive.

I did both tests on both HDDs just to be sure and they both passed.

[EDIT] Nevermind. The HDD that I was under the impression had the errors (shown as health failed on HD Tune) passed both tests. The other HDD though failed the Short Test...

So does that mean that HDD has the problem?

Yes, click the yellow ! fail info icon that showed and it will have info on what failed with a code used form RMA. There is a warranty checker in the same dialog box to see if the drive is still under warranty for RMA.

So according to the ! info it says to either run the tools in dos mode which might be able to repair or assess for RMA. Fortunately my RMA expires on 22 July 2016 so i still have 1 month warranty xD
