Would a low level format help it at all? I am going to replace the main drive, but to use it as a second storage drive?

Its possible, however the question is, can you now trust that drive to store your data?

+1 Ken has given you good advice. I, too, have been burned trying to salvage hard drives that were beginning to fail.

I would never use Seagate again personally.

However, the hard drive that failed was purchased last April and was a WD Caviar Black.
