Please run that, and let us know how you went with that.

nothing pops up when I run it.
Hi,

I'm not sure I understand you...what do you mean by "nothing pops-up"?

A 5 year old ps3 60 gig drive really isn't worth putting much time into. With that many errors I would just get another drive.

As I have said, i use it to store unimportant files. i'm planning to keep using the 5 year old HDD until it dies or until I notice it makes my computer unstable/slow.

Hi,

It would close itself if you were running it from a CMD window which is not elevated, so yes that is normal. Try running the command from an elevated cmd window.

If you want an alternative disk check try a surface test with Partition Wizard Best Free Partition Manager for Windows | MiniTool Partition Free install it and run as in my pic - it is a physical test rather than a software one ie the platter surfaces and to some extent the read / write arm and actuators.
