Hard disk

Hi,

One symptom of HDD imminent failure is that the computer starts to run very slow, particularly when opening files.

To test download the HDD manufacturer's test program from their site.
I find that MAXTOR's Powermax utility works on most brands of HDD.

Check your temp folder (Docs and Settings / your user name / local settings / temp: you may need to allow hidden files and folders to be seen) and delete all files in it. Note that there may be 1 or 2 *.tmp files that won't delete, as they are in use.

Also run defragment on the HDD.

Use windows tools available. Always perform routine Disk cleanup, Disk defragmentator, both of which can be found in system tools. Finally for any disk volume, go to properties and run the error checking utility to fix bad sectors.

Check Disk

by dev_santana In reply to Windows tools

Try performing a check disk whereby it will check for bad sector on your hdd and repair it.
start>run>cmd>type in chkdsk /r
it will tell you it can't perform would you like to schedule a repair the next time the computer restarts.
press Y and enter..
restart your computer and you can see the check disk will be checking for errors and repair it.
It will go thru 5 phasses and it will restart.
for me that is the best way.
no harm trying it.
have a shot & le'me noe.
