My Macbook Pro 13" (2011) had a Seagate 1TB hybrid drive installed as a secondary drive some 4 months ago. Yesterday the volume somehow became corrupt and unable to mount. I managed to format it using Disk Utility seemingly without any errors yesterday evening. However, this morning after recovering a few GB's of data from a backup it seems to have become corrupt and again unable to mount.
I guess my questions is: is my still relatively new drive already on the way out? Is there a command line utility I can run to perform a low-level scan for bad sectors and check its overall health?
With the hard disk crashes I've had previous to this I've never been able to format the disk again, so I guess that's why I'm finding this all a bit odd.
Edit - DriveDX is reporting a high UDMA CRC Error Count value for the drive. I did have to replace the SATA cable when I installed the drive. Could I have purchased a duff cable? If so, why would the drive work (temporarily) again after formatting?
