I’ve recently bought an Western Digital 500GB WDC WD5000AAKX-001CA0 sata hard disk and its started showing errors . I’ve first noticed in Linux disk utility , where it showed " SMART status: disk has few bad sectors". Its not even a week i bought :manmad:.
So i did some googling and found out Western digital Data LifeGuard Diagnostics software . It showed SMART status : PASS. But when i ran the QUICK test , the test failed . This is the error
QUICK Test on drive 1 did not complete!
Status Code = 07 (Failed read test element ), Failure Checkpoint = 97 (Unknown Test): smileysad:
Please provide some insight on this .It not even a week its new one .I’m thinking of replacing as i got Warranty.
Please help :cry:
