Greetings: Re: Windows 7 O/S. Hard Drive
I September of 2014, I used the MiniTool Box to scan my computer and at the end of the scan, there was an "EXTENDED TEST" which was of the hard drive. The result included Test Result: FAIL and the Test Error Code: 08-Unable to repair bad sectors. Since that test, I have been contemplating the replacement of the hard drive. In fact, that particular result has shown up on another test which I cannot recall at this time. On or about the 5th of August 2015, I ordered a new hard drive and in the interim, while waiting for the hard drive to arrive, I did a Chkdsk which came up with no problems. I then resorted to the MiniTool Box again and ran that again but it did not include the EXTENDED TEST at the end of the scan. Am I to assume that somehow, the hard disk repaired after showing on previous tests that it could not be repaired or am I missing something?
I've received the new hard drive and questioning whether to install it or send it back. Thanks for any help.
