Question about Seagate FreeAgent Pro - 500GB, 7200 RPM, USB 2.0, eSATA, External 500 GB Hard Drive
Dell XPS 420 with Vista Ultimate SP1
When booting, the Intel Matrix Storage Console reports that the FAPro 500GB "may fail in the near future... etc". It then works fine but the same message pops up every few minutes. The same when connected to another computer.
No problem when connected to firewire or USB ports, but it is obviously much slower.
On firewire or USB connections, chkdisk does not report anything wrong but, I badly need the faster copying of the e-SATA2 interface, the very reason I purchased it. Help please!!!
FreeAgent Pro USB/eSATA/1394
I think we a re talking about SMART technology, that is disk is telling you that something's wrong. If you have a guarantee, return it to reseller and ask for another one.
