It's Western Digital.

And as I said, it's working really really slow, I dunno how can I even start with the Back-up?
To test western digital disk:
WD Support / Downloads / SATA & SAS / WD VelociRaptor
Do quick test (if succesfull)-> extended test. There's also an option "view test results"

Hiya Kaktussoft

The link you gave me above for the HDD Test wasn't appropriate for mine, but eventually, I somehow got the right one, It's been running for almost 11 hours now, I have a 320GB HDD and I put it on Extended Test, so once that get finish, I'll have a look in the "View Test Results" and see if it makes any sense to me.

But could you tell me what exactly am looking for in that option, or do you wan't me to just post the results here??

Cheers

quick test was successful ... no errors?
extended test is half way, or...? Make screenshot/camshot of "test results" and post. Or copy/paste if possible. It looks similar to this

I never did the quick test, I just got on with the Extended Straight Away.

Now, suddenly after running for almost 12 hours, I get a ERROR saying " TOO MANY BAD SECTORS DETECTED".

And now it's showing u as "TEST STOPPED WITH ERRORS".

I have attached the Screenshot, for you to have a look.

What do you think I should now?

Cheers!

Not a lot of details...pff. I think both partitions are corrupted. Do quick test as well and post results.

Now install macrium reflect free. Does it install succesfully? if so run it. Do "other tasks"->tab advanced-> put checkmark at "ignore bad sctors". Press OK

Take the 'Other tasks' > 'Edit defaults' > 'Advanced' option and select 'Ignore bad sectors', click 'OK'.

I will be now running for work mate, please feel free to take your time and then suggest me the best possible option I can use.

The only thing I have in mind is, since I can now get into Windows, I might just borrow someone's External HDD, get all my data out and format this laptop with a Windows 8 (I have a DVD for 8). But the only worry is....

If my HDD is not working, would it be functioning ok after I have Windows 8 installed in it? Common sense says it should be ok because, I am deleting everything from the HDD and making it a complete blank and then writing win 8 on it, but just wanted to make sure, if that's right or not?

Or else, you think of anything?

Cheers buddy, appreciate your help!
