Ok yes get you some rest. We can continue this later.

Im still trying to get the hang of bootice. Nothing is saved on the external yet so im thinking to save only when there is data stored on the external. But i will wait til later when we go over it.

jumanji is light years ahead of me with HD knowledge, recovery, etc., so follow his advice.

What I always do with a new HD is run every test i can find to see if it passes all tests, performs well, etc.
I would run all the Seagate Seatools tests to make sure everything passes, run benchmark utilities, etc.
I prefer to try an find a fault while the HD can be easily RMA'd if there are any problems.

I entirely disagree with the first statement made by DavidE.

But fully agree with the second part. This is the time when you can do all the experiments on the new drive, incuding the saving and restoring with bootice., without any fear or inhibition. If something happens by mistake, you can always reformat the drive. Nothing more like a total death is likely and even if it occurs, you can take recourse to return in warranty. As a matter of fact all these experimental indulgence work as a stress test and only the bad quality devices will fail during this normal but repeated stressing.

I think your new drive is still not used to store data and you have formatted it using Windows Disk management.

Before you go to bootice, run Partition Wizard with the new drive connected. Of course you have posted the first screen before but now I want you to run Partition Recovery Wizard and do a quick scan. It may finish it off within seconds. And you should see the Window showing found partitions. We shall cross check it with the bootice screenshots you had already posted.Post a screenshot and close Partition Wizard.
