Bad sectors on HDD....

Recommended Posts

So I noticed my 160GB WD has been intermittently spining down and up so I ran Hddscan on it and came up with 9 bad sectors and here's the S.M.A.R.T report on it

Will I be able to remap the sectors or do I need to RMA it?

(uncorrectable sectors at 200??)

The score of reallocated sectors at 180 and a raw value of 13C (316) means that it already has 316 bad sectors reallocated, it is getting close to the threshold score of 140. I would say you should replace the HD asap since there are probably not many spare sectors left. As far as useful life this drive is almost done.

The value of Uncorrectable sector at 200 is score, the raw value is the one that counts, at 8, so it is not too bad.

A drive in its prime condition should have 0 or almost 0 reallocated sectors.
