Never heard of Hdd regenerator. Why not use the diagnostic tool designed for seagate drives. Get the latest version of seatools and see what it says about the drive before risking making a fool of yourself at the store.

That said, you are dealing with an external drive in an enclosure connected by USB. Delays may be inherent in that configuration. What standard USB connections does your system have and what standard is the external drive?

Hi richard59,

First off, hdd regenerator is a tool that allows to repair bad sectors on a damaged hard disk without losses of the existing data. I first checked de hard drive on the diferent tools but i nedded to look dieper.
To answer to your questin on std. usb connection= My laptop has 4 usb
2 stk.=Standaard Enhanced PCI naar USB-hostcontroller
2 stk.=Standard OpenHCD USB Host-controller
and the extern drive it supports both the USB 3.0 and USB 2.0.

I'm also going to check the diagnostic tool you advice.
Thank's for advies.

AFAIK, bad sectors can not be repaired. I'm not familiar with HDD Regenerator 2011 but I suspect all it does is remap the data from the bad sector to a good sector. If you have a USB 3.0 HDD but your system only supports USB 2.0, it's possible the software might consider the speed difference to be a "delay".

Try using the HDD manufacturer's software as was recommended by Richard59. CrystalDiskInfo might be useful too.
