Default Re: Hard drive reporting failure

i tried using the seatools for windows, but it crashes with stxcon.exe stopped working error. I will check with speedfan to see the drive's SMART parameters. the drive only has my windows drive, and another partition where 2-3 games are installed. so not a big deal of loss if the drive goes out. About 1.2TB is free

Update: the sector reallocation count has exceeded past threshold. These seems to be a recurring problem with the seagate 1.5TB drives. Probably gonna have to RMA this sucker
