I have a Seagate hard drive and scanned it using Hiren Boot CD with HDD Revitalizer.
HDD Revitalizer scanned and repaired bad blocks. It only found 2 bad sectors.
After that I ran a low level format. I know this will not change S.M.A.R.T data or HDD Revitalizer.
I repeated HDD Revitalizer and it did not find any bad sectors, and the hard drive works fine now.
However, S.M.A.R.T. showed 32 reallocated sector counts, and repaired them as well. [??? Grammar too bad to fix. Sentence is incoherent.] There aren't any new bad sectors.
I want to relocate "Sectors Count" in the S.M.A.R.T chip, by changing from 32 to 0, because now there are no bad sectors.
Tools like Ubuntu disks or HDD Disk Sentinel shows 32 bad sectors. HDD Revitalizer shows different info.
So, how can i change a data in S.M.A.R.T on Seagate from 2008. year of 250 GB hdd? Is that good idea to change value from 32 to 0?
