I bought a Seagate SATA II HDD ST3500320AS couple of weeks ago running on SATA 1 Port as my board is old. Couple of days ago the whole windows partition was unmountable by the system. I reinstalled the windows. Today the system was freezing a bit. I ran the CHKDSK and the system shows 44kb on bad sectors.. I deleted that root partition and created it again and re scanned but it still showing same 44 kb of Bad sectors. 1st i wanted to know could it be a logical BS or Physical one? I have scanned other partitions of that drive and didn't find any BS. And secondly should i claim the warrenty and can warrenty be claimed on basis of BS? And at last how to check wether its a physical bad sector on the drive or logical one?
Thanks in advance for your help!
