Hey, gang!

I have a series of 2TB Seagate portable USB hard drives I use for a rotating backup system. One of them got dropped, and now it's showing that it's got 217 (D7) reallocated sectors. What other parameter should I keep an eye on, or would it be better to just replace the thing? It doesn't even have 20K hours on it, yet.
