Hello all, first time post.
I am dedicated WD user, right now I am transferring files from out of warranty drives to newer drives, most of my drives are of 1TB and the new ones are 3TB and above. Last night I set up a transfer of files from this mentioned HD (WD1002FAEX) and woke up with a “Error 0x080070079: The semaphore timeout period has expired”.
I exited transfer and then checked disk with DLdiag where it didnt even show up on the physical list of drives, but did on list of drive letters. I then checked disk with file explorer hd tools and it found nothing wrong, so opened up Partition Magic wizard and ran a surface test and it did find some read errors in blocks at about 51% into the scan, one here one there but not all in a row.
I ran check disk from disk management in windows 10 and it said no errors found, so cannot repair errors. But PMW shows the error blocks.
I know its out of warranty but how can I fix the errors if they are not found on windows, but 3rd part apps?
