Data Lifeguard Tool Diagnostics

[ Edited ]

Hi

 

I ran a diagnostic on my external hard drive and it came up with the following result

 

Test Option: QUICK TEST
Model Number: WDC WD2500JB-00REA0
Unit Serial Number: [deleted for privacy]
Firmware Number: 20.00K20
Capacity: 250.06 GB
SMART Status: PASS
Test Result: FAIL
Test Error Code: 06-Quick Test on drive 2 did not complete! Status code = 07 (Failed read test element), Failure Checkpoint = 65 (Error Log Test) SMART self-test did not complete on drive 2!
Test Time: 20:48:46, August 29, 2010

 

I have not lost any data yet and the chkdsk worked ok.

 

What is the best way forward.

 

Regards

Steve

Make sure your data gets backed up and then replace the drive.
