Hai guys I started this thread for an advice. I have a Samsung 40 gb pata(5400 rpm)hard disk. my bios is giving me constant message that hard disk status is bad and replace. so i went to Samsung office and gave the disk. They told me that there is no stock. we will sent this to Mumbai(I am in Cochin) and replace it. After two days i got a new hard disk and i was happy. But when i connected to my system i found four logical partions and in which one of them is formatted and all other drives were full of data. So i smell Some cheating there. So i went to properties of the file in that partions.i saw the date of creation of some files as 5 jan 2005 and the formatted drives day is same as the day i got replaced(20 apr 2005).I think they have tried to format the disk, but unfortunately they missed the other drives. So i fell this is a sure case of cheating. If i again give my hard disk back to them and if they give me completely formated, how should i know itâ€™s new or old? Should i report to Samsung support center about this cheating? Please say ur opinion in this, and what will u do if it happens to you. Hope u will help me.
