It's an external\portable, yes? Am therefore supposing\assuming (no info given) it must be in some kind of cabinet, with USB interface\electronics (and it's own power supply if it's a 3,5).

Am suggesting to take it out of there, and connect it directly in a working pc, or use another enclosure, and perform the tests again. Probably the same error would show up, but maybe worth a try. If it fails again under these circumstances, at least you can be sure it's ready for the trash. And should it go well, get a new enclosure\interface. Whatever you try, good luck.
Thanks 4WD. There is no place to open my Toshiba Portable HD, it's all plastic and there is nothing I can see that will open it. I also don't want to have the waranty cancel. It is truly an issue about the volume being dirty.
