My 1.5GB Caviar Green drive caused data loss and chkdsk errors
It failed Data Lifeguard testing (both short and long)
I used Data Lifeguard to write zeros to the entire disk for data security before RMA
After using the write zero, the drive now passes the Data Lifeguard tests!
The Data Lifeguard report now shows a “1” in the Warranty Column for 3 of the tests. What does this mean?
Has the drive repaired itself or has writing zeros simply improved a faulty drive?
If I RMA the drive, will it be returned as not faulty or accepted for warranty replacement?
