Hi.I have a ST2000LM003 HN-M201RAD Firmware 2BE10001 HDD on my laptop .The SMART monitoring software reports every few minutes a change in Total LBA Read and Written between 94 and 100.Is that normal??
This is the SMART events by ActiveSmart,The changes happen when using drive.

According Total LBA Read and Written Definition it must just Decrease but it's playing up and down.
It passed all tests by Seatools but it worries me about suddenly HDD failure.

How to make sure everything is ok???

Those figures will always change, although the way your utility is reporting on them is somewhat strange. Those figures count the total lifetime 512-byte read/writes... so they will always be changing as you use the drive.

I know they must Increase in RAW value that means Decrease in Percent.I have another external Seagate drive and these values are constant on 100%.I've checked by other SMART programs like: CrystalDiskInfo , HDDSentinel ,etc. and the values are going up and down.The strange thing (as you said) is this values are going up and down.

I don't know should I replace drive using Warranty or not.??
