Sorry, is late right now, I'm gonna take a rest, tomorrow I'll give a feedback, thanks for providing the link

I check on all the Seagate drive already, and it pass SMART test, but which fix or scan should I apply to fix the bad sector? From the basic tests tab, there are a few option there. I used the SMART test, other I not sure. Can you guide me?
And what does it mean the SeaTools will fail the drive if not success repairing the bad sector? Means the tools might damage the hard disk?
You're welcome.

Only the E: drive, but it depends on what brand the HDD is that you need to scan for what "for Windows" version of the program to use. From your specs, either Seagate or Western Digital.

Model Number: WDC WD15EARS-00Z5B1 
Unit Serial Number: WD-WMAVU2142358 
Firmware Number: 80.00A80

SMART Status: PASS 
Test Result: FAIL 
Test Error Code: 08-Too many bad sectors detected.

So do you think that drive is dead or failing badly? And the previous post might have some info I provided, please check, thanks

The HDD failed the test and has to many bad sectors on it. With that and not be able to access it, I'm afraid the HDD is dead. R.I.P.

I still able to access it sometime, but randomly it will be slow down and cannot be use. So there is no way to backup the files?

Not unless you are able to copy the files off of it to another location when able to access it.

I suppose that you could try and use a free program like Recuva on it to try and recovery anything from the HDD, but I wouldn't get your hopes up.

I think I'm still able to copy the files... but might took a very long time since the speed is slow on the E: drive now. I'll try to copy if can, gonna get this hard disk to the guy who install on my computer.

So if I'm still can copy, which mean I'm still have chance to save my hard disk?

You may have a chance to save the data on the HDD before it fails, but the HDD is on it's way to being completely dead and inoperable.

If you hear any clicking sounds at all coming from the drive that will mean the armature that holds the read/write heads is worn and slapping up against the spindle. Grabbing anything you can now will likely prove the last chance unless later taking the drive to a professional data recovery service to grab data off the drive's platters directly for a price!

Besides Recuva best used on drives in working order there are a large number of partition recovery programs usually trials to try out to grab what you can from it before it quits entirely. The main problem faced with that type of recovery program however is files are too often renamed by number! if you are able to recover a large number of them.

Meanwhile I have to wonder if there a way to create a desktop shortcut with the chkntfs /x command applied in some way rather then opening a command prompt for a fast cancel? Most of the time shortcuts go direct to a file on the drive. But i had to wonder about a shortcut with a scripted command somewhat on the idea of a tiny batch file in a sense.

I understand what you saying now, I'm will go get a new HDD, also a same model too because I have warranty still available on this damaged HDD. Gonna copy all files to there before that HDD fails to work.

There is no sound at all, I took off the cover of my CPU, no sound was coming from the HDD, just unable to access it. Now I manage to access it as I mentioned before, and copying some data that I need.

Will taking the drive to a professional data recovery service to grab data off the drive's platters be expensive?

Recuva seems very complicated to me, ha ha
I don't know about the shorcut things you mentioned

Data recovery services will charge! For most it will depend on how important the data is compared to what a service will charge. For things you can download again most would say "no way!" For family photos and other unreplaceable things then you have to decide to pay out to see what they can recover for you.

The alternative methods here may cost a blank disk or two when making a comparison to what a service will charge and why most will be a "do it themselfer" and try to recovery things on their own.

As for Recuva that can be a rather limited file recovery program while Windows is up and running while others work when booting live from disk for recoverying entire partitions. Another option not mentioned so far goes a bit further in using another OS entirely which you rescue files from a drive while booting live from a disk or even a usb flash drive. Recover files from Windows hard disk using Puppy Linux | help.artaro.eu

Ubuntu live cd, Knoppix Live on dvd(at one time small and on cd), Linux Mint live, Linux Mint Debiar live, etc. are able to read, write, copy to and copy from MS volumes. For the effort of download and burn to disk or seeing an iso image written to a flash drive made bootable to boot live from you can grab files manually to save to another drive.

The professional services on the other hand are usually sought once a drive has failed completely and can no longer be written to or not even allowing you to see anything let alone copy files from. The serivce will open a drive up under controlled circumstances to read from the platters directly for the fee they charge. You simply provide the blank media or spare drive they recover files to.
