I've written to Seagate support about this, but still no anwer from them, so I've decided that somebody here can help me. I've just bought a new Seagate Backup Plus Portable 1TB drive and when looking at the SMART attributes, there was a warning about the "Calibration Retry Count", value=3.
Could somebody explain what exactly does that stand for? I've noticed that only HDTune (tried it on ver. 5.0 and ver. 5.5) reported that as a warning. Other programs (like HDDScan, CrystalDiskInfo, AIDA64) say the value is normal and there is no warning. Here is a screenshot from HDDScan for example:
Should I try to rma the drive? I've tested it with HDDScan surface test and Seagate Seatools and it didn't report any errors, but I'm still a little bit concerned with that "Calibration Retry Count" warning.
Thanks in advance
