: Seagate HDD - 65535 Reallocations problem
: electronique December 06, 2009, 08:28:21 PM
Hi all!

This forum was suggested to me after I started a similar topic at the seagate forums and had no luck.
The issue is that I don't understand if my HDD is dying or is just an error posted by Sentinel.
I scanned with SeaTools for windows and HDScan, but it seemed ok to me...

I also:

a) formated & repartitioned and scanned for BAD sectors with windows utility. {{{nothing happened}}}

b) wiped all data with Disk Redactor. {{{the same hdd, no results}}}

1. A short benchmark [read]

2. Health Status @ HD Tune.

3. HDDScan INFO.

4. HDD Sentinel

Looks like bug in SMART modules on the drive
I suggest you change the drive because it seems that it doesn't work properly

It is impossible for this drive to have that many pendings because pending list can fit only much smaller number of pendings
so FFFF-FFFF value is incorrect and that means part of the drive's firmware corrupted

Doomer, thanks for your reply :D - the HDD is still in warranty and I`ll send it to the service for a replacement. Honestly, I don't think they will replace it because SEATools or HDTune doesn't detect any failure to it.
Don't realy know what motive should I invoke on paper...
