Yes that is why I deleted all partitions and it showed up GPT and everything, just finished on macrium and still failed "clone failed 12-32" ..........
Windows 10 hard drive failing (I think)

Is their anything I could do with this drive at this point? I just want this to end.The drive also shows "400+ reallocated sectors" caution in crystal disk. Did I seriously just damage this drive too...?

You didn't break it. If it has 400 reallocated sectors then you got a bad drive and need to send it back and get a new one.
What does disk management say now? Does it show the same partitions as the source?

Yep it's bad. Don't think it's anything you did unless you dropped it. Can't see the G-sense Error Rate or whatever it is called on yours. Return it!

This is scaring me off hard drives in general! the heck caused it to fail. Do you think that its possible the data on my current "Failing" hard drive could have instigated this fail? hopefully amazon has a return policy. Ill check over the weekend.

Any explanation I could rationalize with would help my mental status

Amazon has a very good return policy but it's limited to 30 days or so so go on Amazon and start the return process immediately.. Western Digital will replace it Amazon's time limit has expired.
You just got a bad drive. Your data did not cause this. The first thing you should do when you get a new drive is look at the SMART info.

time limit expired? I will try and return it. What would my next move be, buy another?
Posted 01 October 2016 - 07:46 AM
Just have them replace it. Amazon is good about replacements. They will usually ship the replacement before they get the bad one back.

Got replacement. Any recommendations on my next move? I dont want to make another mistake.
Posted 09 October 2016 - 02:51 PM
I'd check to see if the SMART looks good. Then I would use AOMEI to clone it since we know it can do the newer format.

You sure I shouldnt do a non clone of some kind to be safe? Im worried cloning this bad drive might be causing complications with the new on

I don't think the old drive was the problem. It can't cause a drive to replace sectors. That's just a sign of a bad drive.

So just plug it in and start the process? No needing to format or anything before hand?
