Current pending sector count reset
After using my Samsung HD for ~ 60 hours, I was getting a crapload of 'Current Pending sector count' errors, and this was throwing SMART errors. It was over 30 as listed by the raw values.
Since I didn't want to RMA the HD with all my data on it, I decided I should just wipe it.
Once that was done, it corrected all the current pending sector count.
I now know that current pending error sector count means there was a read error, however, it don't remap these until a write is done, which the wipe did.
The question is, since it don't throw SMART errors anymore, since all the bad blocks were remapped would you still RMA the HD ?
The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is.
