    Unable to intialize Hard Disk


    My Hard disk went bad recently.. so I just went to the RMA center to have it replaced as it is still under warranty.

    I take the new hard disk back home to my computer and now when I try to initialize it... I get all sorts of stupid errors.

    I/O error, CRC error , missing file etc... yes.. almost every error that you can think of popped.

    I am just about at the point of throwing the disk out the window ( literally ) and condemning the vendor for bad parts.

    I am using windows 10 Home Premium and the hard disk in question is 3TB

    Could use the urgent assistance..

    What are you trying to do is create partitions, install Windows or restore from backup? If it's a backup from a backup disk the backup may be corrupted
