I tested /dev/ad12 with DLG Diagnostic and I got no error.

What is really important is any changes. If those values increase then you have problems. If they remain stable then, while not ideal, the situation is probably acceptable - assuming of course you have working backups.

@Phil - In short if the values are stable then the disk isn't degrading further. – Cry Havok May 30 '12 at 21:25
