Please forgive me if this has been posted a thousand times before. I've searched through the Forum and found a lot of posts on this however I still cannot decipher what actions if any I can take to resolve or smart/drive is doing its job or if I should get a new Drive.I decided to post my info and have the professionals look at it any insight would be helpful and appreciated.
I purchased this drive off Amazon everything seemed to work good, so I bought another one so I have two of the exact same model however the first one started showing bad sectors. I know this is topic that is discussed a lot and I'm sorry for another paranoid person worrying about its Drive post, but people get paranoid about their drives and I am one of them . I set up smart in the GUI and set up some schedules for once a month (btw is that okay or what is recommended for smart scheduling) The second hard drive I ordered is working fine and so is the SSD that runs OMV.
Once I got my first email from smart saying I had 24 Currently unreadable (pending) sectors It got me concerned I did do a lot of reading and sort of understand if I'm right it's waiting to read those sectors and remove the data that can replace and set the bad sector aside. I could be very wrong.
This is my daily email.
I received this one once after a reboot.
