I have brought WD My Passport 2620 2TB
And test the hard drive to ensure workingness of drive for a long time
But there were some problem that encounter during the testing of the drive
1. First, I test the drive using HDTune error scan and cancel the test due to overheating at 51°C at 730 GB inside the cupboard.
2. Second, it was Sunday and restart the test using HDTune. Everything was going well but Windows update destroy the whole testing procedure.
3. Third, I was worried about putting lot of read and drive, I started the test with Minitool partition wizard's "Surface tool". So I clicked the the drive partition (at this point and I made a mistake to click the drive not on the partition of that drive but the drive has only partition and realized the mistake after 3 hours after the tes has been begin if I am make a mistake please quote me). The test was completed, taking 8 hours and 10 mins at a speed of 3900+ MB/min at a temperature of 40-43°C (ambient temperature of 30°C.No error was found during the test .
I think I have put 3.25-4TB worth of testing data on the drive
