It provides a Disk Check tutorial in Step 1 of the Toubleshooting Steps you were referred to test the HD. This is not the same test as HD diagnostics

What diagnostics did you use? It says clearly in the tutorial link for HD Diagnostics what to do with Samsung.
I don't remember, it was off the Hirens boot disk...but I'll look at that tutorial again...sorry, but the link takes me to Samsungs website (ES-Tool (The Drive Diagnostic Utility) v2.12a (03.12.2009))

1. Test the hard drive using maker's diagnostics/repair full CD scan: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities or from HD Diagnostics. Then run a full Disk Check on all partitions, if necessary from System Recovery Options Command Line. All these links take me to Samsungs website that does not have any tools for my drive...

This seems to be the only one that I can use: Samsung Drive Manager 1.0.147 (10.28.2011) and this is for external drives.

I'd use http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/. Download ISO burn to CD with Windows Image burner, boot and run Extended Scan.

Those Samsung links were live just a month or so ago. I'll let John know so he can update them.

Ok, I downloaded and ran a S.M.A.R.T Test-which passed and the Short Drive Self Test. What other tests do you recommend?

I have Short Generic, Long Generic and Advanced Tests to choose from. Which the Advanced comes with a warning:

The Advanced Tests menu has options that could erase your data or make the drive unusable for your system. If you continue you could lose data.

Be sure to back up all critical data before using any Advanced Test.

Seagate is not responsible for lost user data.

Please read the help files or contact Seagate Technical Support before using Advanced Tests.

Press F8 to enable Advanced Tests. Click Cancel to go back to Basic Tests.



I'll pass on that one I think...

You want the Long test as I'd specified to repair if necessary.

Data should always be backed up against drive failure.

Waiting to also hear the results of second Disk Check.

Ran 2nd Chkdsk/f and this one finished within a few minutes, finding nothing this time...unlike the first one I ran. I'll be doing that Long Test shortly.
