    If you boot from media, from command prompt(admin) enter chkdsk c: /r
    If from within Windows, open command prompt and you can leave out the c:
    It is implied. You will have to restart to allow access to disk.

    chkdsk stops before it finishes running as do Seagate and western digital disk checking tools. Looking like a new hard drive?

    Check your warranty on the defective one. Some are very good. I labelled my drive with sharpie when I install. Easy to find bill and determine age.
