Xbox One S HDD I check the basic information from the software Speccy.

It is a 1TB HDD.

1TB HDD SpeccyThe driver is almost broken or sometimes works improperly. For example, the game is stacked or lagged during playing the Xbox game. I feel it may be the problem of Xbox. So I took it down and test it.

See the S.M.A.R.T attributes.

I am also testing it with Crystal software. The Health status is Caution.

At the last, I download the SeaTools from Seagate’s official website. Tried a few times to do the short tests. They are all aborted in a few seconds automatically.

Then, I downloaded the SeaTools Legacy version. Installed it and used it to test the HDD.

First, check S.M.A.R.T, it is FAIL.



The short test is passed, but failed on Long Generic test.

That is all I did today. I have no confidence to use it anymore, anywhere. I believe I will destroy it soon.
