out of curiosity i checked my HDD for errors. so, i downloaded seatools for windows. ran it and it showed the DST failed. the bar never came. it just failed. the rest ran fine.
then i downloaded the seatools for dos. ran it all the test and all went fine. DST passed. now what is the problem? DST for windows fails but for dos passes.
