A few days ago i bought a new hard disk for my laptop and decided to keep the old one as a backup storrage device. Since my laptop doesn't have two hard disk slots i bought a special caddy and installed the backup hard disk on the DVD-Writer slot.

Everything went ok, until last night when the backup hard disk suddenly started having problems.

Relocated sectors 128
Relocated event count 7
Current pending sectors 512 ( 400 last night )

The drive has been online for about 300 days.

The faulty Hard drive is Toshiba 5400rpm 500gb

  • Hard disk is failing. Backup up now and replace the disk. – DavidPostill Mar 21 '15 at 11:40
  • I was just wondering if it was my fault somehow. The temperature starts from abt 20C and ends up at abt 33C after a few hours. – arghh Mar 21 '15 at 11:55
