WD Black WD1002FAEX 1TB cloning issue

 I have th WD Black 1002FAEX 1TB internal hard drive that seems to work fine as I am installing in a new computer and moving items from the old XP machine.  But as I tried to clone it after a data restore failure that locked the disk up, causing me to reformat and start over, it will not clone.The disk I’m using for cloning is a WD 1TB green.  CHKDSK shows no issues.  WD Datalife shows ok, but when I try to run the Datalife program to the check the sectors, it stops multiple times for a minute or so before running for a few seconds and locking up again.  After 45 minutes of running time the remaining estimated time that started at 4 hours is up over 46 hours and climbing at the rate of one minute per second.  I really don’t want to have to start over again. Any ideas? 

This is an Intel DH87MC ATX LGA1150 motherboard with an Intel I5 4670K  processor, 16 GB of Corsair Vengeance memory running Windows 7Pro 64 OS.

Thanks for any help you can offer.  Jim.

Hello,

Try it on another Sata port with another Sata cable. Also if possible connect the drive to another computer and run the DLG.

Thanks for the response.  I started DLG again this am on the backup WD green 1TB drive.  It is flowing smoothly but still has a ways to go.  I got the idea that since these are 2 different drives, I might be able to run DLG simultainously…it allowed it so I have both running.  After about 1 hour into the problem WD black 1TB drive, it is running at normal speed and the ETA times have dropped considerably.  It has almost caught up to the backup green drive and shows it will finish 1 hour quicker.  I’ll wait to see what it shows for bad sectors, then see what needs to be done.  I’ll also try your suggestions at that time.  Thanks again!  I’ll post results when it finishes.  Jim.

OK, the scan finished.  Immediately showed a red failed message and I clicked to fix errors. I clicked out of that to get the test results and it still says pass.  If I understand it correctly, the right column labeled warranty that has mostly 0s has 3 items with a 1. If I hover over one of the 1s, the pop up says this attribute is not under warranty.  I’m about to get the green drive to finish it’s run and I’ll try to clone again then finish this post. Same thing, only this time I noticed it said the cluster problem was on Disc 2 (egg on my face).  May have said that all along and I saw what I thought it said.  Anyway, looks like the WD black is fine.  The green tested fine all along.  I’m going to try it back on the other computer, also a Win 7 Pro, but with an I3 3.3.  Same model WD black 1TB drive. Green drive in same enclosure only I have it set up for eSATA on the I3 computer instead of USB, to make sure it will clone here.  I tried 3 different ports  different cables.  Can’t get it to read on eSATA on the new computer.  The I3 board has 2 SATA ports that are red and designated as eSATA.  The I5 board has no red ports so I tried 3 different ones with 3 different cables, no combination allowed the drive to be seen by the computer.  I’ll try cloning the I3 computer and see what happens.  I’ll post this now in case this additional correct information raises a red flag with anyone.  Thanks for sticking with me!  Jim.

Made a perfect clone of the I3 drive…I’m confused.  If it is a disk 2 issue as the pop up states when trying to clone on the I5 computer, why does the exact same set up work fine on my I3 machine?  Tried the WD Acronis software on the I5, that is all I’ve used on the I3.  Also tried the EaseUS software on the I5 machine, same results.  Only difference is the eSATA hook up on the I3 machine vs the USB hook up on the I5.  Is there something in the BIOS that needs to change?  Do I need to get a PCI card to eSATA?  I think two of the cords I originally purchased for I3 were SATA to eSATA cords, as that is what my research said I needed. One was a warranty replacement for the first one when it didn’t work. Actually neither worked with the I3 computer.  Used a SATA to SATA cord in the eSATA port and it worked fine.

Open to any and all suggestions!!  Thanks!  Jim.

Just thought of something…should I pull the cable I’m using on the I3 machine to try on the I5??  Hate to as I’ve got it routed through one of the water cooling pipe holes in the back of the case.  Jim.

Try limiting the SATA link rate via the drive’s OPT1 jumper.

OK, now you’re speaking Greek…;))  I would need step by step instructions to do this.  And I guess, why would this be a problem in the I5 computer and not in the I3 computer?  Yes different MB and processors but all Intel.  Is there something inherant in the I5 setup I have that needs to be slowed down?  Wouldn’t using USB slow the rate?  Guess you can tell I don’t do this for a living, thank goodness!!!  Jim

See http://www.wdc.com/wdproducts/library/other/2579-001037.pdf

It may be that your drive has trouble negotiating a high speed SATA link, in which case the OPT1 jumper will limit it to a lower speed. I don’t know if it would make any difference to a USB enclosure, though. That would depend on the USB-SATA bridge hardware.

I would examine each drive’s SMART report in more detail. To this end I would use a utility such as CrystalDiskInfo rather than Data LifeGuard. CrystalDiskInfo shows the raw values of each attribute whereas DLG does not.

I just ran the crystaldiskinfo program on my I3 computer.  On the 1TB black system disk, it shows that this drive’s health is good. On the backup 1TB green drive it says the drive health caution.  So there is an issue, although it clones my I3 computer just fine.

When I run the program on the I5 computer, both drives show caution.  The green drive shows 2 sectors in the current pending sector count in the yellow, the black drive shows 140.  Sounds like the black drive is the damaged one, but still 60 under the threshold of 200?

Oh, and the crystaldiskinfo program is FAST!!!  As instantiation FAST.  I was really surprised.  Thanks for that suggestion.

So, where do I go from here?  I’m going to try to clone the I5 again. Doubt that anything changed.  Oh, and the skids I ran during the night last night showed it had moved 2 clusters to the bad cluster file.  It hadn’t shown that the 2 other times I ran it on the green back up drive.  Thanks for hanging with me!  Jim.

OOPS!!!  The black drive in the I5 showed 70 sectors in the pending sector count, not 140.  Jim.

CrystalDiskInfo should show the same information for a particular drive on both computers. You should be looking at the Raw values for each attribute. These data are in hexadecimal, not decimal. A value of 0x70 corresponds to 112 in decimal.

http://www.google.com/search?q=0x70+in+decimal

The figure of 200 appears to be the normalised value of the attribute, ie a “health score”, whereas 140 is the threshold. As errors develop, the normalised value falls. If it falls below the threshold value, then the attribute is deemed to have failed.

“Pending” sectors are those that have been identified as bad. The next time the drive writes to these sectors, they will be retested and returned to service if good, or replaced with spares if confirmed bad. This would be happening during the cloning process.

The reason that CrystalDiskInfo and similar tools are fast is that they only need to read the SMART data and the Identify Device information. These data are stored in a handful of sectors in the hidden System Area on the platters. OTOH, tools such as Data LifeGuard require many hours to run because they perform a full surface scan of the drive.

The bottom line is that your drives appear to have media problems, or perhaps they have one or more “weak” heads.

BTW, CrystalDiskInfo has a Text Copy function that allows you to copy the results to the clipboard and paste them into your next post.

Thank you!  I’ll do some more reading and testing and post again, probably tomorrow night. I saved a screen shot of the test, but it is hard to read.   Charter.net decided to do some “upgrades” to the infrastructure in our area yesterday.  Internet was out until sometime today…  Update:  I cloned the t black drive on my I3 unit to the 1TB green drive. Stuck the green drive in my computer and it is working perfectly.  Took my 1TB black drive and installed in the external case,  Formatted and tested, then cloned the 1TB black drive in the I5 machine.  It hung up at the same places proving to me that it is the Sis’s drive that has the problem, but I let it keep going and it did clone the drive after a while.  So I’m going to press on for now knowing that I can back up what I’m doing in the I5 machine, get it usable,clone and use the I3 drive in the I5 computer and then work on getting the drive replaced.   I appreciate all the help you’ve given.  I’ll post more tomorrow night.  Jim.

Man, let’s try that last one again!!

That makes a little more sense.

Finally getting to this.  This is the copy of the info from Crystaldiskinfo on the I5  black1TB drives.  #1 is the drive that is suspect, #2 is the the one out of my I3 machine that is currently being used as the back up drive.  Since I don’t know how to read this, I’d appreciate your informed information on what it all means.  Thanks!!  Jim.

ISTM that the first drive has a problem with bad sectors or weak heads.

OK, thanks for the info.  At what point will WD issue an RMA to replace it?  What do I need to show them?  Will this info be enough, or do I need the info from the WD Datalife software?  The drive does at least work.  But I’m fearful for the first time with a WD drive that it will go belly up.  I’m just glad I finally got it to clone, or I guess truth be known, that I finally got patient enough to let it finish the cloning process. :flushed:  Thanks sooo much for your help!  Jim.

And I found out last night that it wasn’t the drive I thought that was bad.  It is the Green 1TB that I have been using for my backup drive!!!   Might have to get a Blue 1TB to replace it if it goes bad.  Jim.
