Back to this topic, "Bad sectors"

I downloaded WD program to check the WD drives;
Gave Errors;

Did a system image backup to a clean new drive...
Ran the WD program to zero the old drive that was reporting errors; checked again using the WD software, no errors reported.
Restored the image from the new clean drive, ran chkdsk, everything came back clean.
Rechecked with the WD software, no errors reported.

Took a while, better to use a clean drive right?

Nice day

Yes - I told you of my experience in your other thread.
