its ok mate i found it...ran the info...

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...72#post2222672

not good...i am not too sure either i am not too informed in the hdd department -.-.

i realised that this hdd has no partition and its just one partition where i use as a download location. it has about 4gb left and thats when my downloads just stopped and said this drive is removed or something like that....

I am a bit worried...should i buy a new one / replace the data over?...i really don't want to lose 1tb of data lol. Its got old stuff that i had from my previous hdd which i just copied over to this one as i cbf deciding what i want to keep.

Been checking this out for some time and need this aswhell.

Seatools isn't working or detecting drives on one of the dells i have just card reader and it has 64 bit and a 750 in it.

Their needs to be an app to zero out drives and check em in vista or 7 64 bit besides that disk managment crap which never worked since 2k.

Check your hasd disk status with ActiveSMART software. It enables the PC to reliably predict approaching failure of hard disk drives.

Usually whoever manufacturs the HDD has software that will give you the SMART status of the drive and hopefully will allow you to run additional tests.
