View Full Version : Hard Drives Dieing?

I'm a little curious as to my how my HDD's are doing.

I only have a couple of bad sectors in my maxtor drive and none in the WD drive, but it seems my hard drives are slowly painfully dieing. Their SMART health is "low". I've already set up an RMA for my WD drive and will probably do the same with the Maxtor drive.

The question is. . .: how bad are these drives really? Also, even though the seagate drive health is "good", there are many read errors reported by the utility. How bad is that?


My computer seemed a little sluggish lately. . . Probably attributed to poor hd performance.
