I had Windows running CHKDSK on a drive at boot recently, I had to cancel every time because it took more than a day once and I didn't have that much time. I immediately backed up the data and formatted the drive hoping it would go away.
It did, but I wanted to check if the drive was still okay. After seeing this question I installed CrystalDiskInfo and obtained these results:
Noting the Current Pending Sector Count and Uncorrectable Sector Count, I'd like some advice, particularly to the obvious questions:
- What does this mean for this drive? Googling/Wiki-ing it only leads to more HD jargon :(
- Should I even use this drive?
- Tools to fix?
- Would what ever issue it is be covered by warranty?
