Hard Drive Space Diagnostic Tool?

Q: Hard Drive Space Diagnostic Tool?

Running win XP. Hard drive max space is 300gigs. Deleted old photos and videos now at 250 gigs.

Is there a diagnostic tool I can run to figure out what folders and files are taking up all this space?

A: Hard Drive Space Diagnostic Tool?

Try WinDirStat, it's a good freeware drive space manager. It'll help you find the space hogs.

Hi All

Can anyone recommend a hard drive diagnostic
tool for Toshiba MK6465GSX.

Have done some research on this topic and from
my understanding, there is no tool released by the
manufacturer which actually works - the story is
that Toshiba tests come back as failed even if the drive
is OK.

I currently have no problem with my drive but am
interested to know in case of any future problem.
Therefore a solution is not urgent.

I also looked at DOS Seatools however it seems
that the DOS version can only be used on Seagate and
Maxtor drives.

So if anyone has any suggestion on a bootable diagnostic
tool for my make of drive please post.

Ty in advance for replies

A:Hard Drive Diagnostic Tool For Toshiba

I have used Hitachi drive fitness test. It seems to work with all brands of hard drives.

Not as good as a manufacturer's specific diagnostic, but good enough.

I have also heard that Hiren's Boot CD has a Toshiba diagnostic on it, but it is probably the same tool you used.

THIS HAS BEEN SOLVED.


I used windows 7 disk management tool to make a new partition.
It didn't work and I kept receiving an invalid parameters error.
I restarted my computer to find that my hard drive was partitioned.
I extended the drive back and rebooted.
Now in windows explorer I am at a loss of about 200 gb of space.
The space is apparently missing.
I will attach two pictures.
One of the Windows explorer and the other of a tool I used called partition wizard.

and here is partition wizard

Partition clearly shows that I have all the space I originally had, but windows explorer doesnt.
How can I fix this?
Thank you for everyone's time in advance.
All help and info will be greatly appreciated.

OK, here's the deal: I have an old Quantum Fireball ST hard drive. It hasn't worked for some time, and I keep trying to run a diagnostic on it. I've tried Maxtor's PowerMax (downloaded the latest, version 4.09) and it won't detect the drive at all. Just for grands, I tried Western Digital's diagnostic on it. WD's diagnostic pulled up the drive name and everything, but said it couldn't run any tests because it's not a WD drive.

So here's my question, why can't Maxtor read their own friggin drives!?!?? And if they can't do anything to it, is there another program out there than can test the drive?

Is anybody familiar with the Drive Health program from Helexis Software Development? I would

that my HD is going to start to deteriorate on or about Tuesday and I should backup my data.
I also ran into a problem trying to backup my C drive (NTFS) onto an external HD (FAT32). The

Lone Star:I am not familiar with the tool that you mentioned. I would be inclined to try a tool from the manufacturer of the hard disk to check the integrity of your drive. What is the make and model of your drive? The following link should be helpful in troubleshooting this problem.Hard Drive Installation and Diagnostic ToolsYou also mentioned backing up files to your external hard drive. I am not sure if you are trying to backup the entire drive. I would suggest that you try copying only data files that are critical. At least, you will those backed up in case something goes wrong with the drive. What was the exact message that you received when you attempted the backup. Is your hard disk under warranty?Hope that helps.

I have this seemingly unbeatable malware called hard drive diagnostic. It is basically a program that hides all desktop icons, removes all program files shortcuts, installs crap on your computer, hides all the folders in "my computer" and pretends to be a crappy antivirus.
I have tried following this guide: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-hard-drive-diagnostic
It worked fine once, I started the malware program which eliminated the adware files, restarted the computer and found the same malware files again. Now I can no longer run Rkill or MBAM, not even off of a usb drive.
Any other suggestions before I start formatting my hard drive?

Hello,

Looks like my laptop became infected while I was having help fixing my desktop! When I try to start up my computer, immediately I get a pop up from Hard Drive Diagnostic saying that certain programs are "not supported on this machine." My screen stays black without any icons and the systems tray doesn't come up either. It pretty much stays black with the Hard Drive Diagnostic screen staying on top of anything I try to open. I can open up in safemode and I went through the protocol for posting a gmer log. DeFogger worked, DDS downloaded but there was a pop up saying this file dosen't have a program associated with it. When I ran GMER, it seemed tobe doing fine but my computer shut off and rebooted about half way through the scan.

Sorry I don't have any logs...

Depends on the make/model of your drive. Western Digital has an excellent little utility to check THEIR drives. Do you know what kind of drive you have? You may need to open the computer and have a look on the drive. Then go to the drive's manufacture's web site and see if anything is offered.

An icon named "Hard Drive Diagnostic" just showed up on my desktop and later that day I had pop ups about threats to my computer and missing hard drives appear so I restarted to safe mode and ran MBAM (after updating it). After removing infections I thought it would be done but after rebooting to normal mode the pop-ups showed back up. I re-ran MBAM but again it did not solve the problem.

I have an HP Envy 17 notebook. My notebook has 2 hard drive slots. It came with 2 500 GB HDD's. I decided to re vamp my laptop when I got it new. I put in a 40 GB SSD as my main drive. Desiganted as the C: Drive. I didnt have money for anything larger and I had my mind set on having a fast SSD instead of a normal HDD. I also put in a 320 GB Hard drive as the secondary drive. Its my E: Drive.

I also put in 8GB of Random Access memory. It came with 4GB. I then Installed Windows 7 Ultimate to my 40 GB SSD. I had about 7 GB left after installing. I just wanted a fast boot up. And I wanted Windows to run fast and smoothly.

Awhile later My SSD started having space disappear for no reason. I wasn't installing anything new on the drive, nor was I saving anything extra to it either. The extra 7 GB dwindled down to about 200 MB. Now my notebook is always running on low disk space. I have tried removing unwanted programs. I also tried clearing out cookies, history and my cache. Even tried removing system restore and shadow copies. And also tried the windows disk cleanup utility.

Does anyone know why my SSD started to have space magically vanish? I would like the space back. And can anyone give me any other ideas on how to free space on the drive? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

A:Running out of hard drive space. Need info on how to clear up much needed space.

I'm a little confused about your question

You can't see how much drive space you have left when viewing your C drive via My Computer, or similar?

If you right-click on My Computer and select Manage, when the new window pops up click on Disk Management from the left hand side. What does that tell you about C drive? Assuming your C drive is actually a hard drive (and not a CD drive or something, though I have never heard of this happening and don't even know if it's possible to have C as your CD drive), you should see details at the top of the screen such as how much space you have left, by percentage of total capacity, as well as GB

Hi all, got some trouble with (I think the hard drive) and I need to run some diagnostics. It won't boot though, so I need something bootable.

I am looking at:

Ultimate Boot CD

What do you use, and what do you think is the best?
 

A:Best Bootable Hard Drive Diagnostic Tools

The UBCD contains numerous diagnostic tools, the most important ones in regard to hard drive diagnostics are the ones from the hard drive manufacturer's themselves. You can also download the same diagnostics or newer versions of them from each hard drive manufacturer, for example if you have a Seagate hard drive you would use/download the Seagate SeaTools diagnostics to test the hard drive.

The PB diagnostics are likely similar but customized for PB.

My Dell Dimension 4600 has been getting a little cantankerous of late, to the point where it failed to boot up today (I'm on the laptop!).

etc...

Is this the dreaded hard drive crash?

External backup for 2 Win7 home computers.

Prices are currently at a premium for a 2T 2 1/2" USB 3x external backup drive.

I will retire the XP machine soon that is being replaced by the new Win7 machine. The XP machine has 2 drives--one of which is slower than molasses and you can hear the thing churning away when nothing should be going on (indexing off).

I've never had much luck with diagnostic software--in particular PC Doctor when it was shipped with Lenovo systems.

Given the costs involved buying the software makes little sense.

Is there, in particular, hard drive diagnostic software that really can diagnose a problematic drive?

If I knew which drive was bad then I'd put the good one in a container and use it until the USB 3 externals come down in price.

Mark

A:Existing hard drive diagnostic vs. new external

I believe all hard drive manufacturers offer their own diagnostic tools. Seagate, just for example, offers SeaTools which can be used on any hard drive.

SeaTools for Windows | Seagate

These tools try to stress the drive to expose any problems. The stressing could possibly push a failing drive over the edge. If you need to find the hard drive manufacturer, a free tool called Speccy would hold.

We had this problem on my wife's computer running Windows XP and tried to remove it ourselves. First, I did properties of the icon on the desktop labeled "Hard Drive Diagnostics". I went to the location shown in the properties and tried to remove the 3 files and got a message couldn't delete, so I renamed them with the extension .old to no avail. We tried to use the Uninstall guide that was posted by Grinier on Dec. 6, 2010, but after running TDSSKiller, IExplore.exe, and then running Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, Anti-Malware scanned and returned nothing found. We have also tried to revert to last known Windows download as suggested by another PC support person at my wife's work. I hope you can help us as nothing seems to help.

Hello,

I recently had a hard drive diagnostic virus that I removed following the guide on bleeping computer. I'm now left with browser redirect problems. Internet explorer is unusable, firefox is manageable.

Search results in google appear, but when you click a link the redirect kicks in and sends you to an unrelated page, although it's typically to random search pages, kelkoo or out of date websites. Nothing commercial or obviously malicious.

If you frantically click a link you can bypass the redirect. Or clicking the link and then "back" and repeat 4 or 5 times will also bypass it. Once you've bypassed the redirect you can generally browse ok, except that it's quite slow.

If you open a new window or tab then the problem starts all over again.

Any advice would be gratefully received.

OK I'll try to be as clear and direct as I can.

Running: Windows Vista Home Premium

The first sign of trouble came when I got a "hard disk failure" warning and Windows crashed. I restarted the computer and to my horror, the desktop was black, with only an Internet Explorer icon. Everything else was gone, even the Start Menu was blank. Then the fake antivirus popups and this message popped up: "The system has found problems with one or more installed IDE/SATA hard disks." I first ran a full scan on my PC with McAfee AntiVirus Plus, which I have. It found 2 problems and I restarted, but got the same popups/warnings/missing files upon rebooting. Crap.

I Googled and found out it's a trojan called Hard Drive Diagnostic, so I used bleepingcomputer's official thread about removing it, found here: (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-hard-drive-diagnostic) and followed the steps first in Safe Mode with Networking (I've been told this is what you do to remove viruses). However RKill found no processes to stop, so I rebooted in Normal mode and ran Rkill again. This time it stopped a malware process, and I proceeded to run a full MalwareBytes scan (without rebooting, as instructed). After a 2 hr 30 minute scan, it found 10 Objects Infected (never had a number this high before!) and I Quarantined/erased and rebooted.

To my dismay, the fake virus scanning popups/warnings popped up. Still, I proceeded with the next step and downl... Read more

I know that it is a hard drive failure but i dont know how to fix it can anyone help me please?!

A:Hard Drive Failed during diagnostic. Error Code 2000-0142

The drive needs to be replaced.  If the system is under warranty, call Dell with the error and they'll arrange that.
if the system is out of warranty, and you need a recommendation for a replacement drive and installation instructions, we'll need the full model number (i.e., Inspiron N5110, 5521, etc.).  
You're also going to need a set of recovery media -- if you did not prepare one when you received the system, you'll either need to download and make that (newer systems) or call Dell to purchase it (older systems).

It should have about 465GB, what are you seeing?

You will not have 500GB due to the conversion between binary and decimal for reporting sizes.

I have a system and 3 internal hard drives.

The drvies are 120GB, 160GB, and 180GB but my system only recognizes 111GB, 149GB, and 167GB respectively. Tha tis about a 7% loss of space for each drive. 33 gigs lost in total. That's a lot of space.

None of the drives are partitioned and it's not and HP or other like system. It's a custom built PC. I only have an OS (WINXP) installed on my C drive (the 160 GB drive).

No matter how I connect these drives (on-borad IDE or IDE controller card) my system will not recognize the full space of any hard drive I install on my system.

The 120 is slave to the 160 and the 180 is on an ATA controller card (Promise Technologies) all by itself. All are Western Digital. The 180 is a special edition (and I recommend you stay away from WD special edition HDs. I have had to swap it for a refurb 3 times in 1.5 years. This is the first time I have installed it on a newer computer, though, so I hope it does not break like it did on my old, ancient system 3 times. My old system was and AMD 850 Duron with 128M RAM..but I digress).

So is there a way to get back this 33 gigs of missing HD space or is this just the way it is with WINXP?

Thanks in advance.

BTW, my MB is an ASUS P4P800SE with a Cerleron D 2.4MHz in case any of that matters.

Hi everyone,
I installed Ubuntu on my computer a few months ago and created another partition for it on my 1TB hard drive.

I didn't really care for Ubuntu so I decided to delete the partition it was on.
That might have been a mistake.

Well, now there's 87.68GB of free space on my hard disk that I can't use and I don't know how to add it back to my c: partition.

There was another post about this a couple years ago, but I don't understand the instructions and am not actually sure if it worked. Can someone explain how to do this, please?

I'm not completely computer illiterate, but I'm not familiar with partitioning disks. It was just the one time with Ubuntu.

The unallocated area is actually an empty extended partition. You need to delete that first.

I have a Logitech MX300 with wireless 3 button mouse.
The left, right and scroll wheel work fine, the center button doesn't seem to work at all.
I have the latest version of SetPoint and tried setting it up with different key mappings but to no avail.
I'm not even sure if it's working.

Is there any diagnostic tool that will show me when I push a button that it's being activated?

I first tried to get it to work in WOW(World of Warcraft) but no luck. I then realized it doesn't even seem to work outside the game. I mapped the button to be an 'X' and opened a text file. Pressing the button resulted in no action, no X's.

I'm running Win7 64bit.

Any ideas or info about a tool?

Thanks!

Hi. I have had my PC perfectly running since 2010. I have played all kind of video games with no problem with my GXT 580. Recently I hired and installer to add more ram to my PC and a SSD drive. He tried for a lot of time to install the additional ram and did some stuff on the bios with no avail. He then told me that he was going to leave the PC at that (with the original ram) and installed the SSD. Everything was great and I have been using my PC for almost 6 months without problems. The problems started last week when I decided to play again some video games. Whenever I was playing games (Planet Side 2 or GTAIV) then the infamous BSOD appeared. I think that if I never played any video games (since the new installation) I would have never experience the BSOD. I highly suspect of something the installer did. Please, please help me!! Thank you so very much!!!

I've experienced some strange events on my computer and I thought the first thing I'd do is run some disk diagnositc tools. I have five physical disks:
C: system/program disk
D: backup of C
E: data disk
F: backup of E
G: Spare disk ... using as 2nd backup of C

Since C & D are Western Digital devices, I downloaded one of their LifeGuard Diagnostics: DLGDIAG for Windows, and ran the "Extended Test" against C, D, and G. All passed. The control panel says that SMART status is not available -- I forgot how to turn that on (as far as I know, it should work with all five drives).

Any hints on a more demanding disk test that would not wipe the disk clean ... I do not want to have to reinstall my software because of the test. For what it is worth, I'm using Acronis True Image to make image copies of C to D and G.

in another (GASP, CHOKE) forum and thought I'd post it here for review/ comments.

I used the download file to create a boot floppy which runs the diagnostic. You also have the option of burning it to a CD.

One advantage I see over other memory diagnostics I've used, is this one runs it's test sequence (a set of 8) continuously until you stop it. This allows one to run a repeateitive test sequence over an extended period of time (like over night) and have a better chance of detecting an intermittent fault.

A:Memory Diagnostic Tool Problem

Which memory test, which tool, and which tutorial? I'm presuming that you're using the built in memory tester - and it should've given you a notice if it passed the test or if it found any problems. If you didn't get a message, then I'd suspect that the test terminated abnormally - so you'll have to run the test and see if you can get a message from it (or see when it terminates). This'll involve a lot of boring, staring at the screen - but I've found not evidence of a log file or results page that will be displayed.Here's a link to the BC tutorial on the memory test: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/using-vista-windows-memory-diagnostics-tool/

Hello,

I recently purchased a Dell Studio 1747 laptop. However, it had numerous issues. I managed to get enough replacement parts for it to finally be fixed, however, I would like to test one of my old memory sticks in Windows 7 Memory Diagnostics to see which one is defective. I had 4 GB of RAM. Surely, both couldn't be, right? I think only one of them was defective. I want to test to see which stick it could be, simple enough, right?

Even simpler question. In the Windows 7 Memory Diagnostic Tool, what is the max amount of RAM it can scan? In Vista/XP it was 4 GB. Is it the same for the Windows 7 version? I am running a 64-bit OS. If not, shall I just remove one of the existing (good) sticks of RAM and replace it with the questionable one and run the test?

I've already ran the test on my new, freshly replaced RAM, which came back all-clear, so, I know any new errors should be attributed to the extra RAM I put in.

Thanks,

Necifix (Or TWISTEDBroly, this SN is old)

I have a Dell xps l502x with Windows 10. I had restored my computer and saved some files on my backup in the other partition. I tried to find the other partition and changed my startup Hard drive through command prompt. The computer reboot and started in the Dell Diagnostics. Now it wont let me exit and go back to windows. I try to exit and it will restart right back to diagnostics. I tried F12 (it wont give me the option for F8) and it doesnt give me the option to reset. I am stuck and i dont know what to do. Can someone help me get back to windows.

Hi, hp Pavilion p7 1010, 64 bit, Windows 10 home edition.   My desktop is running perfectly except for this problem. For years I have had the hp Hardware Diagnostic tool on my PC.   Recently, it got uninstalled somehow.  I have unsuccessfully tried to re-install it and I keep getting this message: 1.  Hardware Diagnostic Tool will be installed in an UEFI partition on the hard drive.2.  HP Tools Partition cannot be found.3.  main drive already has 4 partitions.  Additional partitions cannot be created.4.  Error 1722- problem with Windows installer package. The download then stops and does not complete.   Over 3/4 of my C: drive is empty.   I don't understand why this program that was installed and worked for years, somehow disappeared and now will not re-install as it seems to think there is not enough room for this file??  Can you off me a suggestion as to how to reinstall this program.  I like to run this about once a month to check on the over functioning of my PC.Thank you,beachguy

I'm trying to augment the HP USB 3-in-1 diagnostic tool, which also includes the ability to update the BIOS on any machine.  I've figured out that the .BIN file is the BIOS update file and to put it in the \Hewlett-Packard\BIOS\New folder to allow machines to be updated.  However, when I tried to update a HP EliteBook 8540w, it didn't work, giving me an error message of "Signature file not found." Since I'm able to update other HP systems (dc7800, EliteDesk 800 G1, ProDesk 600 G1, etc.) by putting just the .BIN file on the USB drive and selecting the update BIOS option from the BIOS, I figure it would also work using the HP 3-in-1 diagnostic tool.  Apparently, the 3-in-1 tool uses some form of CRC check to validate the BIOS file first.  The problem is, I don't know for which file the tool is looking, so I'm stuck. Does anyone know the file structure of the BIOS section of the 3-in-1 diagnostic tool?  I need to know what files need to be put in what locations in order for the BIOS update function to work correctly.  Any help which is provided is greatly appreciated. Thanks,Timothy

Got infected with this virus, which looks and acts just like what is described in the Hard Drive Diagnostic Uninstall Guide. On starting up, it starts going through its thing, but when I ctrl-alt-delete, Task Manager button was greyed out! I got it back by booting in safe mode with command prompt and then deleting this from the registry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\DisableTskMgr

Now I can ctrl-alt-delete and stop the popups that the malware displays, but then I am just stuck in a blank, black safe mode screen with no taskbar. I can pull up a command prompt, but no idea what to do with it. I can get back into the task manager, but nothing is running in applications, and the list of processes doesn't mean anything to me.

I'm ready to make a log, but not sure how to get the log-making files onto the computer.
Thanks in advance.

I can perform a Standard test without any difficulty. However, when I tried to attempt an Extended test the process halted at about 10% of even the
first test. After about a quarter of an hour it was still at this point so I pressed Esc to cancel the test.
How long would this Extended test normally take ? Was I a little premature in stopping it ?

My old Seagate 1TB hard drive was filled to 780GB out of the 1TB. Since I was getting close to filled I upgraded to a WD Black 2TB. I used the Windows 7 back up to create a complete system image. I replaced the hard drive with the WD then did a system restore from the image. Everything works fine and everything looks exactly the same except the new hard drive is only showing 322GB used out of the 2TB. I now have both hard drives in the computer and opened up the contents side by side, they both contain the same files and folders. The 1TB drive is showing 780GB used and the 2TB drive is only showing 322GB used. Am I missing something here? Shouldn't they both have the same amount of space used?

I scheduled windows to check for memory problems. Then when i restarted windows it was stuck in a loop of checking memory problems. It didnt find any problems. When the test finishes it just starts over. And if i hit exit it just restarts the test. Restarting my computer doesnt help. And i tried pressing F8 to go to safe mode but it wont open it just goes straight to wmd. I found this online which said it would stop it:

The fix should be done on the command line by launching a command prompt as administrator...

bcdedit.exe /bootsequence {current}

Then...

bcdedit.exe /default {current}

But i cant get to command prompt. Also i put my windows disk in that came with my asus computer and i cant access command prompt threw there either. It doesnt even give me the option to repair windows. Just restore. I think if i could make a boot disk to load command prompt i might be able to fix my promble. So if anybody knows how to fix this i would greatly appreciate it. Also restore is NOT an option.

I wasn't sure whether to put this in the hardware forum so forgive me and please move if appropriate!

I purchased 4GB of RAm a few mnths ago and also got a copy of Vista HP64. From the get go I had all sort of issues in Vista - games would not run, the OS seemed to crash a lot, would get messages like MS Outlooks data file was not closed properly. Windows defender would crash all the time.Tried about 15 different nVidia drivers... gave up. I tried 3 different HDDs too.

So anyway I moved back to XP because I assumed it was simply Vista.

This week I downloaded Win7RC1!! I'd heard nothing but greta things on podcasts, in forums etc. So i installed.

From the start I've had again defender crashing, "windows logon" errors, action centre shows me a LOT of errors that it's detetced and fixed. I get a few "explorer has stopped working" errors too. UGH! Games do not work - they freeze either on loading or after 30 seconds or so of gaming. I've had 4 or so BSODs which I had heard were basically unheard of in Win7! They were of varying variety.

All these erros in 3 days worth of running Win7? Seems a lot.... and errors on core components of Win7 too.

Try running with just the good module inserted. That'll (most likely) tell you if it's the RAM or not.

Good Morning,

This SF Diagnostic tool is very useful, but failed to copy the .dmp file from the workstation with the issue. At first I thought that it could have been because I was running the tool remotely, so I proceeded to ask a person in the office to run it for me and we got the same outcome. SF Tool failed to copy the .dmp file. I found this strange so I went ahead and ran it on my own work laptop running windows 7 pro 64 and it completed as expected. Any ideas why this is failing? I have attached the .zip file to see where to go from here...

How exactly do I burn the windiag.iso file that mtinst.exe creates to CD? Do I simply use the "burn Iso File" option of my burning software [Nero 6]? Do I rename the file to remove the .iso extension, and then "burn Iso file", as in the instructions for creating slipstreamed installation cds? Do I need to use Nero's "create bootable CD" option and then burn the iso file?

Any advice on how best to use WMDT? MS suggests using the menu options to turn the CPU cache off and to run the "extended memory map" rather than the default standard map.
