I have a friends HP laptop which warns on boot "back up data and replace HDD as failure is expected".
Its a Western Digital 2.5 SATA 2 and I have tried WD's zero fill utility but this keeps failing too.
Is there any way to low level format / zero fill this HDD or should I just advise him to get a new one?
I have loads of boot CDs like UBCD, UBCD4WIN, BartPE but I am not really sure how to use the advanced HDD tools.
Any info appreciated.
