In addition to SeaTools the WD diagnostic tool is
WinDlg
You may want to run the Quick tests first.

Hi Brink and mjf,

I just ran WinDlg on my drive and it shows error code=07 failed read test element, failure 97 and based on WinDlg manual, it said read element failure and I have to RMA the HD. Fortunately it's still under warranty until 09/08/2014 so I guess, I will RMA it and get replacement from WD. Thank you so much for all the help.

Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors
Will take a long time (1hour+ depending on the size of the HDD). The Seagate and WD diagnostics provide a quick check option. This doesn't substitute for a full scan but if they fail you'll know sooner that you have a problem.

I don't understand why, given after a crash Windows will give you the option to "Start Windows normally", that it doesn't also have some built-in way to prompt the user to do a Disk Check. I often end-up forgetting about the abnormal shutdown of Windows and the possible disk corruption that may have resulted.

Does anyone here know of a method or utility that will enable me on bootup to select a Disk Check without having to go all-the-way in Windows and set-it-up manually and reboot yet again?

Hello Max,

You could open a command prompt at boot and run chkdsk using OPTION TWO in the tutorial.

Hmmm what's the easiest way to "open cmd.exe at boot". I know there's a Repair thingie somewhere (maybe F8?) but now you have me thinking an EasyBCD menu item. Thanks for yr reply!

It depends on what you consider easier, but you could take your pick below.
