To be fair it lasted longer than the SeaGate this laptop came with. That died in like 2 months.

Haha was going to say it's better than Seagate. Both Seagate 1TB I purchased, straight from the box, have an ominous clicking noise from them each time they are used... so I back them up with a WD Unfortunately that's the best I can get hold of locally.

If it's not even a year yet, the drive warranty is still in effect. Have you try contacting manufacturer for replacement?

I think Neo practices Kung Fu with his laptop.

No Idea why you go through HDD like candy Neo, perhaps checking other things hardware wise to see if something is causing this.

Also make sure you don't have your laptop near anything magnetic, like big ass speakers etc.


Thats why I was referring you to a SSD drive, if there is magnets or something involved demagnetizing your HDD causing bad sectors, then at least with a SSD that won't happen since its chips that is used.

You can then use an external HDD for storage (and it wouldn't need to be a 2.5 HDD either so would be cheaper)

You mean far from the Subwoofer, and not the actual speakers right? Because if you mean the actual speakers, don't know how this Seagate HDD has lasted for 3 years.

There is no such thing as "regenerating bad clusters". You can reset the bad marker by writing zeros to the hard drive sure but it doesn't repair the actual damage that's there (and Windows will subsequently remark it as bad when you do a full CHKDSK command).

Once you get bad clusters, it's only a matter of time before you get a SMART warning from the HDD (which has yet to go off for me).

That's bad news.

So are you thinking of getting another one now, or seeing how long your current Hard Drive holds out?
