Could be HDD failure, or software?

Go to solution Solved by WereCatf,

All this sounds similar to what I had on an old PC and the problem was... the SATA-cable. Swapping the cable to one that sat a bit tighter fixed the problem. The UDMA CRC error - rate would also indicate it's an issue between the drive and your system, so I'd recommend trying a different port and a new cable.

Hello there.

 

I would be glad if someone could help me.

I bought a 3TB Toshiba HDD around 2 months ago and 2 days ago I got a message from HD Sentinel which said the health state is critical (29%), and it detected 85 uncorrectable sector failures.

I was freaked out, so I performed a retest to make sure it's not a mistake, and the error is mystically disappeared, the health state is 100% since then, but the performance is..well.. crap... I think this is the best word.

None of the programs I used has detected any error, but the write speed drops to constant 1.5-2.5 MB/s from the original 110-140/s in a few seconds after the operation starts. The read speed looks kinda okay, but it also decreased from constant 170/s to an unstable number between 55 and 160 MBps.

Btw it's an archive drive, so in theory, it shouldn't be impacted by any windows background operation.

Could it be a simple software failure or it is the drive which closes to the end?

Thanks for the help!

First - check sata cables!

 

Second - do not make reset/reinstall system especially when you have drive problem!

Back up anything important on the drive asap, don't take any chances with a failing HDD.
