Few days ago I was downloading stuff on torrent and the torrents were failing cause there was I/O device error. It seems that I can still view the files in explorer, opening small files will work, opening large files especially videos seems to work but if you try to foward in parts of the video there will be significant slow and sometimes crashing of the video player.
I've tried to do a chkdsk, it identified 8kb in bad sector. I tried to do a surface scan and it only went half way after something like 30 hours of it running, so I gave up. It did however fix 4 or 5 files that had bad sectors. Now the drive still seems to be really sluggish when I tried to watch files from it,
I downloaded western digital's data lifeguard diagnostic tool, but when it scans for drives available, it doesnt detect my 2tb drive as a physical drive, but it does show up on the logical drives. Did I not set this up properly in the first place? My 2TB drive had files in it already when I set up my new computer, and its been a few months since I've used it this way with no problems...
Any idea what to do with this?
