Morning folks. I'm trying to run seagates seatools for windows as I think my hardrive could be on the way out.When I try to install it it says "this program requires .NET framework 2.0 or greater" and wont install.Is there another program just as good I could use instead?Would I need this .NET 2.0 for anything else?Thanks.
".NET Framework is a library of routines intended for use by most Windows applications. It is included with Windows Server 2008 and Vista, and is also available for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP SP2."
Anyone with an ATi graphics card could well require .NET Framework for use with the Catalyst software.
It won't do any hard to install .NET Framework, especially as it is required by Seatools.
I done a windows update choosing the "custom" option and .NET 3.5 was offered.I installed it,it took a while and ran the seatools program.Quite often when booting my computer I'm getting "boot disc failure boot from cd and pres enter" and I have to switch on and off a few times before windows will boot.I feared the worst but my hardrive just passed all the basic tests with seatools.How acurate is this program,does anyone know?
I ran the chkdsk first Stuartli.Where do you find the report of the errors it finds,if any?Crossbow7.I've got most of my files backed up.I just need to get windows backed up.I'll run HD tune and see what that says.Thanks.
I ran the HD Tune program and that too found no problems with the health of the drive being ok.So I'm not sure what's causing these errors with the drive.It's as if the computer is not "seeing" the hardrive sometimes when booting.
