    I connected my 320Gb HDD to my PC, ran S.M.A.R.T. diagnostics and CHKDSK and it passed with no remarks. Made sure it didn't have any hidden partitions or such, that would cause issues.

    Connected it to my WiiU and formatted it, began to install some games using WUP installer GX2 (games I know is good as I installed them just before on another drive) and then it suddenly stops working...

    Reboot, relaunch installation and a few moments later it stops...

    Did this a few times and noticed that it breaks randomly..

    I have the drive powered externally, so it's not the USB ports that buggy..

    Could it be the drive is failing even if the tests doesn't show?
