Windows 7: [Help] External Hard Disk error: Folder Won't Load !!

20 Sep 2010   #61

MS Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit

Microsoft Updates are running perfectly.

But what if MS tells me your copy does not pass the authentication test ? (As MSE validation test gave)

Will I be left with any other alternative or not?

Please Answer , I am very tensed.

It's not an error.
I have an external with 270GB of music, media, pictures, and other files plus another 100GB+ of portable applications, for a total of 450,000+ items. Even with indexing turned off, it still needs to read the MFT and permissions for each file in order to display the files and if you have an AV installed, it will probably scan the external before giving you access to it. On older systems the whole process can take almost 3 hours, but only needs to be done once with each computer

Now, I have given the HDD back to Seagate for Repair/Replacement since I was not even formatting !

Tried Sea Tools test for HDD but all test failed.
Hence it's over now ! Will get the Replaced/Repaired Disk in 5 days.
