Hi, I keep getting a replace or repair hard disk. What is the command I can run to do this?
you can run hard drive property then Tool then error-checking. It should work
here is what I would do.
1. open CMD
2. type chkdsk /f
3. Restart when asked
4. let that run
Hope this helps. This is essentially the same thing as kvonlinee said only easier.
I did what you guys suggested and the message is still coming up. What else can I try plz?
sorry to say,but if I were you-I'd back the data if possible & replace the drive :/
It's only 1 1/2 years old though. Can it be RMA'd?
Most likely. I believe most HDDs have 2-5 year warranty. I am not sure on that but I know WD does.
if it is Seagate, you may want to check with seatool for window I think long drive self test nad it fail you contact to customer service on the web to return. I has 2 seagate drives and RMA both of them. my work now.
if other I don't know for sure. one brand is Hitachi I like because I read somewhere it is reliable for a long time.
If it is a desktop drive then it also makes sense to check the cable and connection and/or try the drive in some other system before dumping it.
Run HDD Sentinel, for a direct overview of the situation. Then you could use HDD Scan, for a complete read+verify scan. Messages of this kind (repair or replace hard disk) are usually generated by the SMART itself, it doesn't necessary have to be a physical damage, could be some of the motors failing and stuff.
normally, lifetime of hard drive is around 4-5 years. I recommended you should claim it with manufacturer.
