SMART status question


Recommended Posts

I don't think such an issue makes your driver eligible for a replacement or repair. It's not a re-allocated sector (a.k.a. bad sector), but only a pending sector. You could call it a "suspicious sector" that may or may not become a bad sector. What I would do is install HDSentinel and keep it running, and configure its alerting system to warn you about any further issues that may come up. That pending sector may mean nothing, or may be a "teaser" of worse things to come. It's hard to tell which one, at this time.
