Windows 7: ChkDsk errors keeps coming up

Running WD Data Lifeguard on internally connected HD is the way to determine if the HD is salvageable, not running Diskpart Clean or Clean All commands.

It sounds like the drive is finished, but I would test it internally to see if it can do any repairs. If so, follow that with Disk Check to see if they will both run clean. Even then I would not trust it fully again.

You are correct. I will get a new hard disk, but before i smash up the failed drive, i will test it one last time to be completely sure.

Okay guys I know its been a while, but I just wanted to say one thing. So I disassembled the drive and I immediately found out why all this time had been wasted; There was a huge, very obvious scratch on the disk's platter. Well, atleast I got some really good magnets!
Thanks guys again for your help!
