Sorry for posting an unfinished question but i find it verry difficult to use this forum ( the message editor menu doesn't work, i can't use the Link or Image buttons, can't paste text in IE11,can't change font color or size after i write the text...)
I also get this error on most threads: The website cannot display the page HTTP 500 Most likely causes: The website is under maintenance. The website has a programming error. Are you encontering some temporary problems with this forum or it's always this difficult tuowork with it?
Hi guys! I just bought a 2TB Seagate external HDD(model no: STBV2000200) After a few excellent results in some benchmarks i got this message "HD Tune Pro I/O Error! Test Aborted" when i tryed the "File benchmark" more precisely the Block size measurement from HD Tune Pro:
http://imageshack.com/a/img834/3865/n1vx.png Then i tried the Random Acces test from HD Tune and, after running the first three transfer sizes it stopped, giving the same error. So, realising i was using an old version of HD Tune (4.6), i upgraded it to the latest version(5.5) and this random acces test worked fine, but the file benchmark is still giving the same error http://imageshack.com/a/img163/9956/m8ws.png as you can see in this picture the Random Acces test now( in version 5.5) skips the 512 bytes transfer size ..... So... i don't know if Atto disk mark is the same as File benchmark in HD Tune , but because it seems similar to me, i tried it... http://imageshack.com/a/img35/9379/zmnn.png and as you see, this software is notifying me that transfer size is less than the disk sector size so.... the test auto adjusts to start from 4KB instead of 512B then it runs without any issues and i think the results are very good considering this is an USB 3.0 not an eSATA drive, so it has a built-in SATA to USB 3.0 adapter that could slow things down...: http://imageshack.com/a/img827/3513/fxwv.png Going back to the error message (I/O error) i thought it might be a good idea to test with IOmeter and if this test fails maybe the drive has some problems. This is some interesting information from IOmeter:
http://imageshack.com/a/img691/2217/74v.png this message appears if i try testing with a 512B access specification, but if i test with 4K or more the test works fine Please tell me if i'm wrong or confirm this: Is the error in HD Tune "File Benchmark" caused because this drive is formatted using 4K sector size and the test wants to start from 512B, not being able to auto adjust like ATTO, and giving a generic error message instead of a more explicit one like IOmeter or even ATTO does when trying to test starting from 512B tranfer sizes? Also, Why has the Raw Read Error Rate such a big value here?
http://imageshack.com/a/img401/3570/oht3.png This is a new HDD, and though the Status column says "OK" my internal drives have very low values for this parameter (one has 2 and an other 7), but strangely, my SSD has a high value as well for this parameter. Here are some other tests that look good:
