I updated firmware before trying this fix. The problem with HDD started with 'sector relocation count' sky-rocketed to ~600 and Windows stoped booting, giving BSOD. I updated firmware, that didn't help. After some time drive became 0LBA. I tried a fix in this order: SMART reset, defect-list reset, power-off/on, user partition format, it gave me: F3 T>m0,2,2,0,0,0,0,22 Max Wr Retries = 00, Max Rd Retries = 00, Max ECC T-Level = 00, Max Certify Rewr ite Retries = 0000 User Partition Format Successful - Elapsed Time 0 mins 00 secs F3 T>The drive is still detected as 0Mb. Maybe this situation is already covered somewhere? Help would be much appreciated.
