File Structure

By alex_b ·
I have HD Seagate barracuda 40 GB. My PC time to times crashed. I checked HD by Seatools and found:
File Structure Critical Error. After that I made Low Format Zero Fill using Seagate Utilities. But again after that I found: File Structure Critical Error.
How can I repeir this problem?
Best Regards/Alex

First, turn on the SMART in the BIOS, sounds like its turned off. Run the diag again and see what the SMART diagnostic says about the drive.

If the SMART check is OK, then try a utility like Norton Win Doctor or something similar and try to repair the file structures. The third party utilities will "generally" do a better job of repair than the built-in ones. You don't even have to install Norton Utilities. Win Doctor will run from CD as will Disk Doctor. If running WinDoctor or similar utility (there are plenty of other utilities out there, I generally use Win Doctor, because I have found that in most cases it works quite well, but the other I hear are fine too) does not work, then back up the files and reformat the drive and restore the files.
