    Thank you BriTech09 for the Windows tech videos. Greetings from across the pond.

    I can concur about backing up the drive first, before running diagnostics or repairs. I have encountered issues in the past when running diagnostics/repairs of the drive, especially a really bad failing hard drive in that case can make things worse.

    Thanks Brian 😀

    Oddly enough i havn't had many real spinning hdd's fail.
    The one in this lappy is 10 years old and not even one bad or dodgy sector.
    Past drives like Connor and maxtor were living on borrowed time lol 😀

    All these are "read only" tests. Yes, it's only necessary to run a read-only test to see if the drive is dying, but I think after a quick read test, doing a WRITE test is best (not only to see if the disk has faults with writing data), but it also allows the hard drive's firmware to reallocate bad sectors with known good ones from the spare pool. Boot up from a Ubuntu or other Linux "live" disk, run badblocks on the drive with (safe) read/write testing (options "-nsv"), or better still, run the write test which erases everything (options "-wsv"), but badblocks takes AGES to complete! I don't know how well it works with so-called "hybrid" drives.

    Hey Britec09, Is it safe to delete all system created windows error reports?

  20. Matt Alexander

    Hi in HHDSCAN, should i be worried if when doing a read data scan i have a couple of "BADS"

  21. Almedo Gjurgji

    What software to use to repair if we are not having to do with physical problems? Would you suggest HDD Regenerator or HDAT2 for that problem? Or maybe using the chkdsk command in a command prompt?

    Hi Brian. How do I make a backup of a failed external hard drive? Great channel, by the way. You’re my GoTo man whenever I need advice.
