S.M.A.R.T. info expert advice needed

Recommended Posts

All,

I have a Samsung HD103UJ 1TB HDD that is showing the S.M.A.R.T. info below.

Can you please advise how bad the situation is and if I should replace this drive?

Thanks,

Ahhhh - a screen cap would be better, much easier to read.

Also, are you seeing or hearing any problems or just scrolling through SMART?

Thanks Brian for the quick answer, the disk is part of a X-RAID array in a ReadyNAS NV+ system.

Today fsck got stuck after a reboot and I'm suspecting this disk to be the cause. The HD does not sound any different from before.

What do you think?

What would be good is if you could do a media verification run on the disk (some controllers can do this in bios) or otherwise use the tools specific to the brand disk to test it if it's still good or not. For all of this you'll need to hook it up to a PC though.

Unfortunately I only have a laptop without SATA connection so running the verification test is not possible now.

I was wondering if from the reported values for the diverse SMART parameters something can be inferred?

Thanks,

If I were you, I would not be putting any further data on this drive. And definitely would not keep it running.

The drive has encountered bad sectors during read operations, however those sectors are still not allocated as damaged. Drive marks them as 'pending sectors' until a write operation is done to the same sector (in case some data recovery utility might try to recover it).

You need to take it offline and zerofill the entire drive through manufacturer's utility. They you can see how many bad sectors will be allocated or if those sectors that are pending will be recovered.

It has ran 2 years nonstop with only 16 reboots... So I would say it is over for this drive.

Thanks for the feedback.

Do you know if the manufacturer's utility (in this case Samsung) will run using this drive connected to a laptop through a SATA to USB adapter?

Or only through a direct SATA cable connection?

Thanks,
