Crashing HDD

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
okay i have two hdd in my system (look at sig for sustem stats) one 640gb for main (running os and all that stuff) and one 70 gb i used from my last computer just as extra space; know i ran hd tune for my main hdd and his is the results Look at attchments.

If you look at the 640gb the graph for read and write speed is literally all over the place and that usually means an hdd that is about to crash and i just bought this hdd months ago; For the second test was my 70gb one and that one is really stable and i have had that one for 6 years

so my question is is the 640gb hdd going to crash or is the read and write speed fluxuating like crazy because i am running the os and a couple win7 desktop gadets?

its the latter. Fluctuations like that are to be expected on an OS drive.

No, if your drive was going to crash, looking at the health tab would tell you what on the drive is dying.

No, your drive is fine.
You should only worry if it's going all over the place and the minimum is dropping way low.
Here's an HD tune result of my previous dying HDD (RMA'd with WD already)

well, programs and the os in the background is sometimes reading stuff...... most likely that.
