The message is genuine: It is not malware. Test your hard drive.

Test a Seagate manufactured hard disk drive using SeaTools for DOS run from a bootable CD.

:step1: Please download SeaTools for DOS (CD) from Seagate's SeaTools for DOS web page

or use the following direct download link to download the latest version of SeaTools for DOS:
Download SeaTools for DOS ISO Image

The downloaded file name is SeaToolsDOS223ALL.ISO
[/list]
:step2: Burn the downloaded .ISO image to a CD using the appropriate burning software.
  • If you do not already have a suitable burning program for writing .ISO images to disc ...
    • Download and install ImgBurn.
      Ensure that you UN-check the box agreeing to install the Ask toolbar during the installation.
    • Place a new (blank) CD disc in the drive tray.
    • Choose Write image file to disc.
    • Under Source, click on the Browse button: Navigate to and select the .ISO file that you wish to burn.
    • Place a check-mark in the box beside Verify.
  • Click Posted Image

    When the CD has been burned and verified as successful, it will be bootable.

:step3: Boot from the CD.
  • (You may need to access the BIOS Setup Menu or the Boot Menu and change the boot order to enable booting from CD before hard drive.)
  • From Basic tests on the Main Menu, run the Short test and then the Long test.

    (The long test will take some considerable time to complete.)
    The results will be shown as either a PASS or FAIL.
    There is a chance that during the Long test, you may be offered the opportunity to attempt repairs on the hard drive:
  • If so, go ahead and attempt to do so, but ONLY after backing up all important personal files.
[/list]Note: You may wish to view the following ...
Please let us know the results of the tests.

The Diagnostic suggested by AustrAlien has identified that the drive is defective.
If the drive could have been fixed by the software it would have however notice at the bottom of the Seagate message where it says

Repair was unsuccessful on the hard drive.


Seagate Warranty and Returns Assistance @
http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/warranty_%26_returns_assistance

Set up a RMA and have the drive replaced under warranty.
That is the repair process for a failing drive.

I would also suggest backing up anything on there that you don't want to lose.

FWIW I do not believe the energy savings in a Green drive make up for the slower speed. And IMHO they seem to be more problematic.

Thanks for replying rotor123: After the topic was split, I was no longer subscribed to receive notification of any replies.

No question about it: Replace the hard drive under warranty!
