    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!


    Here's a link to the Seatools for Windows.
    You'll have to accept their agreement to proceed to the actual download page
    SeaTools for Windows | Seagate

    You're learning this stuff the exact same way that I started out.
    Eventually all of this will make more sense to you.
    Good luck!

    EDIT: I've updated the HD Diag page ( Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure ) to reflect the SeaTools for Windows link also.
    Thanks for letting me know!

    Sorry I have not been back to finish this up. I've been busy the past few days. I'm going to attempt to do this all now. Sorry about the wait.
