My external harddisk(500GB) got slowness when I view the files. When I tried to transfer files, it works fine for only 1 -2 min. after that it cannot detect drive. I suspect it was cable issue hence i change the cable. After change the cable, I was able to transfer file successfully but when i tried to run the WD Drive Utility test, it shows SMART Test : passed, Quick Drive Self Test : failed, Complete Drive Test : failed
Can anyone advise is this the sign of my harddisk gonna “DIE” soon as??
Kindly advise as the warranty i going to expire soon. If it is gonna dies soon, then i better get it RMA.
