    Instead of going through all the hoops of downloading WinObj and clicking and sorting, it is much simpler to just go to the "Create and format hard disk partitions" utility and see what disk is labled as Disk #. That solves the volumes issue, too, so that there's no confusion.

      yeah i was thinking this was a fix an all it was was defining which Drive letter it is….dang it man. You are 100% correct all you have to do is go to Disk Manager and find the drive number associated with the Drive Letter…..errr. Like the last lines …if you find a red sector you need to replace the HDD….well duh….I was looking for a way to isolate the bad sectors and keep using the drive.

    Thanks. The article is probably very old, but still worth a serious try.
    Unfortunately, WinObj > Device shows partitions 0,1,2,3 with Volumes 1 -3 and going to Global, well, it's still down to which drive, which partition.
    This article sure helped to narrow it down though.
    Microsoft has decided to remind me every 3 seconds that there is a problem with the drive. Every THREE seconds!!!
