I have a USB Seagate drive, this is a 1.8TB capacity USB external harddrive, I found that the following error logged in my System log on a Windows Server 2003 server for every 20 minutes.  Based on my observation, the warning below logged while the drive is idle and at the time of logging, I heard a sound from the drive, the sound like something triggered on, then a windows pop up and asking for "Open folder to view files", the same windows as the usb key or usb drive started.

Does anyone know how to solve the problem?

The model of Seagate USB ext drive is "9sf2a8-500".

The system failed to flush data to the transaction log. Corruption may occur.

I would *strongly* suggest backing up any critical data - it sounds as if the drive "reset" itself, which is usually an imminent sign of failure...

I am trying to reformat the drive by using the format function in Windows, I started the format at 10:00am this morning but the format task is incomplete, I would say 80% is done.  Is there any fast method to format it in 30 minutes?

no - I am now convinced that the drive is bad though!
