    Well right now it says "GPT Format Not supported to even attempt to make one lol, 1st one i tried that i knew was Macrium Reflect USB drive, wouldn't boot lol, ((Haven't started the storage drive full format yet, making sure got rescue media working first lol)

    System does have UEFI bios, so not sure what going on lol

    Unless i just add boot menu option, and attempt thru that, but can always try another usb stick if need be lol, ((this one for some strange reason only has 249mb left lol))
    Boot menu option won't help if you format the drive. The winRE it needs is in the OS or Recovery partition.

    Format a thumb and make a new one.


    EDIT: Just saw it's the STORAGE drive you're formatting

    Right it's the storage one, thankfully the SSD is fine, then again SSD is less than 2 months old so better be fine lol. Formatting Flash drive currently, then hopefully all is fine when thats done haha. So much steps to do, but just will have to take time, and do 1 by one

    Fixed!! Solved after full Hard drive wipe with Western Digitals Software/full format

    Showing Good in HD Sential and Crystal Disk info now

    Restored from Within Windows as second storage drive!!, thankfully that worked, now to sort out USB rescue disk problems, but at least main problem solved

    Glad to hear that. The Reallocation Event Count shows that no sectors needed reallocating, so they were all good sectors after all.

    I wouldn't trust any har drive showing a yellow sign in CrystalDiskInfo! It means it has started to failed. It should be all green and good. You could still use it, perhaps for months or years. but it is telling you is getting bad already.

    Well so far still showing Good on all drives connected currently, Will keep eye on it, and when i get some money in future i may replace it in the future, being that was my only other internal drive, besides my Samsung 250GB boot SSD, this one i wanted fixed til at least i have money in future to purchase a newer one.

    Will keep strict eye on it, make sure i backup weekly, about all i can do

    The Current Pending Sector Count is an exception, in that it is not confirmed as being correct until the drive has been formatted and has re-tested those sectors.

    If the drive was really failing the sectors would be reallocated and added to the Reallocated Sector Count, that one is a strong indication of imminent failure. If the sectors are tested and found to be good then the pending sector count is cleared as having been a 'false positive'. In that case the yellow warning will return to a blue 'healthy' indicator.
