Thanks, would it be possible to initialize your disk first?
It only writes 4 bytes to your MBR which is not available at the moment.
After initialization, windows would be capable to use your disk.
This behavior is since W2k,
It can improve the results.
Please have another try to run a diagnose.
I'd need infos from Analyse and Quick Search.
If you run into read errors, please let me know.
Don't stress your disk as much.
You can also check the S.M.A.R.T-values using CrystalDiskInfo;http://crystalmark.info/software/Crysta ... dex-e.html
After dropping down your disk, it might be advisable to check the status of your disk also!
