    Your smart values at 100% fine. That application doesn't know what it's saying, I would ignore it except for the raw SMART values which all look fine to me. Some drives spin up faster than others and 3 seconds for a black is normal.

    As I said, it's fine. I have drives in worse condition according to SMART that still work fine.

    This by no means says it's okay to not keep a backup of your stuff. Drives can fail without warning, even if it is okay now, although there are no indications that it's about to blow up in your face.

    dont worry about hdd regen saying back up data immediatley. it always says that.
    but it will turn red if it really wants you to do it.

    also the smart errors hdd regen sees are probably from when you had the 1st problem and smart data went to 0.
    smart remembers stuff like that. unfortunatley theres no way to reset the smart info.

    the drive looks fine.

    Ah ok, so no worries, right?

    The 1st problem was bug, as HDD is OK now.

    As have been said countless times. UNINSTALL that piece of crap HDD REGEN. It's a terrible problem.

    if Crystal Disk says it is okay, it is okay, IGNORE HDD REGEN

    hdd regen is fine. but dont use it to monitor drives.
    its actual surface scan is good. but its smart monitoring isnt great.

    Yes when I scan it give me OK, 0 bad sectors and passes ALL, just say me to do backup when this crazy SMART things appear, which are incorrect.

    So, I'm safe, right?

    your hard disk is fione, ignore smart errors from hdd regen. surface scan said is fine with hddd regen so it is fine. other apps say smart is fine. so it is fine..
    the hard disk is fine.

    In other forum anyone said me this:

    "Problem is that some sectors are damaged but they have been reallocated (140 reallocated sectors).
    Your drive is going to die, backup your data on a new one soon as possible"

    If you are in doubt about the health of a given HDD, there is always the option of running the extended self-test (a test actually built-in in the drive itself, which will test the surface, mechanics and whatnot) via smartctl, or GSmartControl if you prefer a GUI for running and monitoring these tests. A better option than running HDD Regenerator and rest of supposedly miraculous scamwares. If I were you, I would run one extended self-test per week / 2 weeks. And of course, backup of critical stuff is crucial. On addition of that, I personally always create par2 files (MultiPar is the client I run and I have cmd files to create recurrently and unattendedly par2 of any folder in a tree folder) of the most important files, as an additional security measure to make sure that any eventual silent data corruption can be detected and repaired.

    [​IMG]

    Highlighted the most three important attributes for WD discs. No reallocated sectors, spin-up time is good and raw read error rate is excellent. Current value mustn't be lower than the threshold, ever. Rest of "secondary" attributes are OK, such as no CRC errors due to faulty cabling.

    Ye gods, NO. Look at the "Valor Bruto" column. The values in the other columns are values, not the data itself. You could see them as scores. But Valor Bruto is the actual data, if it says 00000000000 it means 0. If the drive had just 1 reallocated sector that program would throw up a warning (or a yellow light).
