First of all thanks everybody for help
[QUOTE=mciahel;2613968]Data Life Guard is what you want. Apart from that, the Dragon is roughly 1000% correct about the “low level format”
This is the tool I used to write all zeroes and to test the disc (both quick and full)
I have a dozen computers running Windows 7 Home,Pro. and Ultimate 24/7
Running Folding at Home 24/7 on these computers and been doing it since Win 7 came out.[/QUOTE]
There must be something in my machine then. After 3 days the computer becomes unstable, and then I find the machine crashed without any apparent reason. The event viewer shows nothing.
I also tried to make “regular” reboots manually every 2-3 days, but nothing changed. Crashes are totally random and I have no idea what is the cause
Even if I already tested RAM with memtest, I did only 3 complete cycles. I never tried to run memtest for a couple of days. I’m sure that overheating is not a problem, because there is no cable mess in the case, and there is a 20cm fan in the side panel blowing a lot of fresh air all over the mainboard.
Linux is not that hard and its native drivers are even better than windows 7 native drivers. Configuring, compared to windows, is hell. Perhaps that’s bothering you?[/quote]
Actually yes :o
In every distro I tried there is always something that I’m not able to configure, something different with each distro (for example, what is working out of the box with ubuntu is not working at all in fedora and vice versa).
[QUOTE=Mr. Belvedere;2613978]Another idea: How does the drive perform in another computer, preferably one you know is very stable.[/QUOTE]
I didn’t think to this. How can I check it? Should I fill it with data and run again the full test with WD tool?
