I've been getting errors now and then with my ADATA HD330 2TB disk (ST2000LM007-1R8174), e.g. in some directories:
Also, the LED sometimes blinks red while also blinking blue, which is a bit strange:
, since this is not described in the datasheet, see below; pure red should mean "shock" (well, the disk is stationary on the table), but this blinked red AND blue.
So, how do I find if the error(s) is physical (hardware) or not?
I need to know if it's case to apply the warranty claim. It could be just a filesystem error (I noticed that the USB cable had bad contact, so I changed it, so the errors might originate due to that), or it could be physical disk error. I don't want to just repair the filesystem without knowing if it's physical error i.e. the case for applying warranty.
I tried to use Crystal Disk Info (see below), but I am not any wiser after seeing this:
EDIT: chkdsk output (unfortunatelly, in Czech, do you know how to make it speak English? It says "Removing damaged record attribute (160, $I30) from segment 200646 of the file record" etc. and finally "There were errors. Program CHKDSK can't continue in read-only mode."
