Hard Drive Errors

MugginsMuggins Registered User regular
Welp, after almost a year since I built this thing my secondary HDD is starting to fail. I'm getting SMART errors when I run WD's diagnostic tool. More specifically it is showing this: v9jZmcT.png

Thankfully it's still under warranty for about another month, but I'm wondering if I really need to do the whole RMA deal or is there something else I can do to fix this?

It's a WD Caviar Blue 1TB HD. Model number WD10EALX if that helps any.

    Re-allocated sectors are basically sectors that have failed data-verification, meaning data was read from it differently twice, or data that was written was not read back the way it is expected to. So the hdd writes them elsewhere. So, bad sectors basically. Your hard drive will compensate for it best it can but I'd recommend backing up your data and replacing the drive soon.

    Coolio, I'll just go through with getting it replaced then.
