I’ve tried 3 different apps to check the health of 2 drives, and they all disagree. Drive 0 is an 80Gb Maxtor, Drive 1 is a 160Gb Seagate… So…
“HDD Health” says 100% for the Maxtor, 57% for the Seagate.
“HD Sentinel” says 26% for the Maxtor, 92% for the Seagate
“HD Tune” says OK for both and scans both with no errors.
I’ve also run chkdsk in various ways with nothing showing up.
So. Can anybody enlighten me as to what exactly is going on here? Should I be concerned that HD Sentinel gives my Maxtor just another 99 days to live? Has anyone else had similar experiences? Google is unusually sparse on this topic.
