Hi all. This is my first time posting on this site, so forgive me if this isn't the correct location.
On with the issue.
I have an OEM Samsung hard drive (made by seagate,) which I think is failing on me. The computer has been sluggish lately. It will be fast for a few minutes, then it will come to a halt and just sit there. Then it picks back up again, and might be a little slow. I removed the hard drive and connected it to my Rosewill 2 hard drive dock and opened up Seatools for Windows on my other PC. Running the Short DST reports that the drive is fine. I also launched HDTune, which again reports it is okay. I put the drive back in the computer and used Ultimate Boot Disk to load Seatools for DOS. Seatools for DOS is reporting that the drive has bad sectors. Which one do I believe? I tend to think that Seatools for DOS is better since it is checking at a DOS level. Would I be correct in thinking that? If I have to buy a new hard drive, then I will. I don't need anything that is on it.
