Have had 3 instances of bad sectors/drive failures in the past 10 days.
Ran HD tune (trial vers.) 3 times yesterday(quick scan).got C5 current pending sector warnings of 8,11,13 unstable sectors.
DLDDIAG quick scans all pass,so ran extended scan which found bad sectors,but failed to repair with message:-08-error was detected while repairing bad sectors,contact tech support.
Attempts to clone disc to back up drive failed with error message:-Failed to read data from disk,sector 291,680,408(first try),sector486,890,936(second try).R/W operation on MD device has failed(0x590001).
Is it RMA time?.
