    In addition to SeaTools the WD diagnostic tool is
    WinDlg
    You may want to run the Quick tests first.

    Hi Brink and mjf,

    I just ran WinDlg on my drive and it shows error code=07 failed read test element, failure 97 and based on WinDlg manual, it said read element failure and I have to RMA the HD. Fortunately it's still under warranty until 09/08/2014 so I guess, I will RMA it and get replacement from WD. Thank you so much for all the help.

    Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors
    Will take a long time (1hour+ depending on the size of the HDD). The Seagate and WD diagnostics provide a quick check option. This doesn't substitute for a full scan but if they fail you'll know sooner that you have a problem.

    I don't understand why, given after a crash Windows will give you the option to "Start Windows normally", that it doesn't also have some built-in way to prompt the user to do a Disk Check. I often end-up forgetting about the abnormal shutdown of Windows and the possible disk corruption that may have resulted.

    Does anyone here know of a method or utility that will enable me on bootup to select a Disk Check without having to go all-the-way in Windows and set-it-up manually and reboot yet again?

    Hello Max,

    You could open a command prompt at boot and run chkdsk using OPTION TWO in the tutorial. :)

    Hmmm what's the easiest way to "open cmd.exe at boot". I know there's a Repair thingie somewhere (maybe F8?) but now you have me thinking an EasyBCD menu item. Thanks for yr reply!
