​Device has a few bad sectors

  • There were a red dot on S.M.A.R.T. dashboard. When I place cursor on it, it told me "Device has a few bad sectors.".


    So I manually checked the S.M.A.R.T. information of the divice.

    The Reallocated_Sector_Ct attribute seems normal:

    Then I use openSeaChest tool by Seagate:

    The No.5 attribute:

    Code
    5 - Retired Sectors Count
    Attribute Type(s):
    Pre-fail
    Online Data Collection
    Event Count
    Self-Preserving
    Nominal Value: 100
    Worst Ever Value: 100
    Threshold: 10
    Raw Data: 00000000000000h

    Please tell me what is going on the disk drive. Should I replace it?

  • please revise attribute 197 & 198:


    197 Current_Pending_Sector 0x0012 100 100 000 Old_age Always - 96


    and yes, you must consider to replace it. or at least check if grow

    Thanks for your analytics!


    After reading your comment, I checked S.M.A.R.T. informations of other drives. The RAW_VALUE of these two attributes of other drives are all 0. So the one with value 96 seems being dying.

    I 'll replace it soon.
