DLGDIAG time remaining > 1000 hrs


This is my backup drive mounted in an eSATA enclosure. Running under win7 x64 I’ve always had a problem dismounting this drive but that is a Windows problem. But for a few weeks I’ve got this problem where the drive pauses.  So I’m running DLGDIAG. At the start DLDIAG shows 2 physical drives and three logical drives but after a while the third (problematic) drive appears. Now after 2 hrs of running on quick media scan its showing 1090 hrs till finish. It seems stuck on sector 8447

Any suggestions


Try to run HD tunes or if you are using a Mac computer use First Aid. If you get the same issue the drive sector is faulty and you will need to replace the unit.
