I have 3 of these I received for testing. Initial load has 1% health on all 3 drives. To keep the initial post somewhat readable I will only post info on the first disk as all three are showing the same behavior.
I ran an initial surface test on the drive and it found bad sectors.
I then attempted to run a reinitialize disk surface test on the drive but I cancelled it at 10% due to a test speed of 1.37mb/s. I then posted in another thread about the issue but I think it would be best to create my own thread re: this issue.
I then decided to delete the partition and reformat the drive in windows to see if the drive has some faulty format or partitioning.
After that I ran a read test and also a read+write destructive test.Read SurfaceWrite Test Surface
So now the drive seems fine after deleting partition and creating new with format. So I figured maybe I could run the Reinitialize test and all would be ok.....
Same thing 1.37mb/s test speed.
