I believe a 5.9 is the highest any spinner HDD can get, and considering you have a 3 Gbps, that score seems normal.
I thought the highest score possible was a 7.9

They didn't reset anything. Why do you think myself and so many others are shocked by the "show me your WEI scores" threads? You can edit an XML file to show whatever score you want. You could do this since the very early stages of Vista's beta versions....so that's going back...5-6 years or so. There's even a tutorial on it here.

I assumed everyone knew about that by now. If you google "edit my WEI score" you'll find plenty of links, including the tutorial here. That's why worrying about your WEI score doesn't make much sense....or using it as a measurement of your system.

I don't worry or use it as a measurement, it's just the fact that it changed got me to wonder. I already know that you can edit it.

I must be slow in the synapses area because I never thought of editing.

Microsoft has coined a word for folks who aim at a perfect score: "Braggers". These guys are mostly gamers.

The @OP has a valid point,when he says, the WEI changed!

In addition to checking the HD as Rich wisely suggested using the maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan, finish checking over it's condition by running a Disk Check.

Then delete all the junk you may have accumulated, run CCleaner to get the hidden stuff, then a good disk defragger like Puran Defrag Free Edition which offers a boot-time defrag and even Disk Check itself.

Hard Drive low WEI score!
Since switching to Windows 7 x64 my hard drive is only scoring 2.9 in WEI. Under Vista it was 5.6 or something around there. Is there a reason for this? Thanks! Here is a link to my hard drive: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/141471
