I tested a wd green 1 tb drive that was becoming very slugish and which windows advised a disk check.
So I first bought a new wd drive and copied everything over before I attempted to repair bad sectors.
I ran a quick test= it failed , I ran an extended test = it failed.
I then wiped the entire drive thinking it was time to send it back for a replacement. However, after running a multi pass wipe to clean the drive of information. (o’s and 1’s and so forth)…I re-ran a test; with new results:
quick test = it passed.
extended = it passed.
I am wondering is it wise to still use this drive or would Wd recomend, whilst it is still under guarentee, to send it in for a
thanks for info. : )
