    persistent Error code when trying to create folder on HDD

    Hey guys.
    I have a segate 1TB external HDD and right now I barely have anything stored on it. Well, just now when i tried creating a new folder i keep getting error code 0x08000FFFF! What the hell?! This HDD is not even 2 months old! Is it curtains for the drive? Or is there some action I can take? I follow directions very well. Thanks for taking the time to read this question.

    and run that to see if the drive is bad

    as a side note. HDD's can go bad at any time,, they can last 5 min or 20 years, there is no way to tell.

    Can you get it out of the enclosure? If you can connect it to your motherboard, you can try to scan it with GWscan. I'll tell you how if you can get the drive out.
