I do believe the drive is dying a slow and painful death by the looks of the benchmark test
and it will not complete the WD Quick test glad it is still under warranty and luckly I have a
brand new one on the way as I type this that I bought last night.
Hmmmm............ maybe it could just be a bad SATA cable but it is a brand new cable so I'm
inclined to think it is the drive dying maybe it is RMA time. :iagree:
Here is the HD Tune benchmark test and the WD quick test result as you can see it never does
finish the quick test I let it set there for 18 minutes and it is only supposed to take around 2 or
so minutes to run it and on my WD 1TB it finishes in 1 minute and 59 seconds.
