From it as you come to know , that my 1 tb has started working fine and is giving me no error but still out of inquisitiveness i decided to do a S.M.A.R.T test using Speed fan .

And it is showing that the end to end error count is failing . .

The test results :

Since it was a replacement for a failed drive it could be new or repaired. It could have had a rough journey.
Even new parts can be defective, it happens.

Since the drive is a Seagate I would use Seatools the Seagate diagnostic. It can be found at
http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/seatools/

There are versions for windows or you can create a Bootable DOS version and use that. MY preference.

The drive makers diagnostic program is the definitive test in my opinion. If the drive is really going bad then the Seatools will provide a error code that will help with a RMA from Seagate.
Run the Short test and the long test.

Good Luck
Roger

well I trust the specific drive maker software to test their drive more than a software that isn't brand specific.
Having said that the Dell & HP built-in drive and memory diagnostics seem reliable too.

Um , so does that mean that it is safe to use the hard disk and my hard disk is completely fine ? o.0

How can I put it? OK, if it were mine I would be using it. However I keep nothing on any of my drives that would be a problem if they died. Anything I worry about losing gets burned to DVD or BluRay discs and put on the shelf.

It passed the drive makers test. In theory they know their product better than speedfan does.

I have always found that some drives are just noisier too. I try and stay with silent ones especially in the computer hooked up to the TV set. The other benefit of a silent computer is that when something is starting to go bad you will be more likely to hear it before it dies.

If I were not totally sure that a drive was good I'd be using it for temp storage, for example to save to when I work with video since when I'm done they get erased anyway.

In your case if you don't feel comfortable with it you could try and RMA it again. Keeping in mind that the drives they get back fro RMA get repaired and shipped out as a replacement in the RMA process. Or they get sold as refurbished. I've had RMA drives that lasted and others that died and had to be RMA again. Hence my Backup system now in use. That would be Important on a internal drive, and and external drive and on a DVD or BluRay disc.

AND ... keep an eye on that SMART data, particularly the error you have highlighted! :exclame:

Edit: FWIW ... I would be more inclined to be attentive to the SMART data than I would be inclined to put any faith in any of the manufacturers diagnostic tool overall assessments!

I will conduct regular S.M.A.R.T checkups and see if it is getting worst .

That's about the best you can do, I think.

Good luck.
