I just used the CrystalDiskInfo program to check my hard drive and recieved a caution status and im wondering if i should be worried about my hard drive. When i booted up my computer today i had a "disk read error press ctrl+alt+del" message which is why i checked my hard drive. I haven't had many problems before this but my hard drive has been acting relatively slow recently.
I've already backed up my important data on a usb but im wondering if it's ok to continue using this hard drive, i've heard great things about this brand and they are supposed to last for 5 years yet i haven't even had mine for a year....
I'm running windows 10 and have had this Western digital black hard drive for less than a year.
I've included a snippet of the report from CrystalDiskInfo
The Current pending sector count is 36 and the uncorrectable sector count is also 36
