Hi Guys, the 2Tb drive in my main rig is throwing up smart errors (in HD tune) and is unable to run the lifeguard tool (comes up with an unknown error). After looking in smart it appears i have 1 unallocated bad sector and tried to correct it using check disk (clicked choose to try to fix bad sectors) to no avail. I'm wondering what the best course of action would be. Either i could buy a second drive to backup this one and go for an RMA, but i really don't need 5Tb of space on my computer at this time. The second option i could buy a second drive, backup then write all zeros to see if that fixes it. Thirdly i got a copy of spin right, so i could try that and see if it fixes it. Otherwise i could just ignore it as it only throw up random BSODs every so often. The reason i want advice is after having the disk for 4 month and getting a bad sector, is this a bad thing on a 2Tb drive (the re-allocated bad sctor count is zero). If the drive is likely to fail on me, then a replacement would be better and hope i don't get a re-furbished one, right? Edit - Thx in advance for all responses. My laptop drive also has a few bad sectors, but there's no problem getting that replaced via warranty as i can back up the whole drive on my main rig.
