NO,You only need to run the tool once.

You should have already burned Data Lifeguard ISO to CD when you ran the test.

Test is run by booting the CD, then choosing Extended Test from menu.

DId you do this?

Download the Western Digitial Data Lifeguard for DOS ISO file: Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for Windows

Use ImgBurn to burn to CD at 4x speed with Verify.

Boot the CD by tapping the Dell F12 key at boot, choose CD drive. Or set CD drive first to boot in BIOS setup.

Run Extended HD scan, report back what happens EXACTLY.
