    https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sour...Wb81b7v9CLgqIN maybe you can find the Paragon error and see why it failed. Not sure if this PDF is for your product. Your body may be telling you to take a break from the PC

    No rush to do anything today. Run CDI before doing chkdsk commands as CDI will give you immediate results on drive health.

    Windows checked the file system on bot drives and found no problems. I downloaded DDI which gave status "good" on both C 98% and E (no % indication) So I believe they both OK. I will format the Seagate again before trying to make a MR backup.

    That's great news so far Tore.

    What worries me, though, is that CDI showed volume letter C: G: on the C: disk...

    CDI will show all drives currently attached. If you disconnect an external drive and it still shows, use the refresh/rescan function in CDI.

    I am sorry for being unclear, of course you are not a mind reader. The G: (ghost) is not connected to the PC. But CDI named the C. drive "C: G:" (two letters in stead of just C:) Hope this was better...

    They may be partitions on the drive. Crystal Disk will show all partitions on any physical drive.

    That explains why then, it was not the ghost after all...

    The Samsung internal SSD shows health status 98 % in blue, not green. The Seagate also shows blue, good, no % indication.
