Data Lifeguard extended test time question

I was just wondering what a reasonabloe test time is for the extended test? Right now I am runnign the test on an RMA replacement I just recieved.


The first time it failed in 10 minutes citing "too many bady sectors". I powered the coputer down and replaced the SATA 2 cable I was using with a spare SATA 3 I found.


I am running the test again, and it has goten further along; but the time remaining is at the 13 hour mark. This feels a bit.... high.


Any thoughts?

Indeed is kind of high, I'll suggest you to contact Western Digital and replace your drive...
