Hello, I am having a problem with a 1TB Hitachi hdd which today didn't seem to perform well.
Had to clean the system a little then it started working alright. Should I worry about this problem?
Here is a crystal disk info ss:

It says no errors were found. Crystal Disk Mark still shows Caution.

Those are sectors relocated to the spare area, they won't show up on a surface scan. The drive does that to deal with sectors in which it can recover information, but are obviously about to fail. It transparently remaps the sectors to a different area of the disk reserved for such things.

My advice: Check it regularly for a couple of months, make sure it doesn't go above 5 reallocated sectors. If it doesn't, it's likely a simple bump or something caused those, the drive dealt with it, and is otherwise still solid. If it goes up though, it's a sign of a larger issue.

Slightly offtopic note: I've never had very good luck with Hitachi's Deskstar line. Their UltraStar line is crazy good, but noisy as heck because it's designed for servers unfortunately.

just check is that any lose data, suddenly no responding, weird spinning up and down, or the bad is clicking.
but i suggest do backup since you dont know how long it will last, some people run it for years but some get it worse in shorter time
