technically 1 bad sector is still alright & doesn't impact performance.
HDD are built wit buffer headroom so when there r bad sector that cant be repaired, it will stop stop using that sector.

with that said, bad sector is like cancer that will inevitably grow.
1 bad sector 2day, 2 bad sectors 2moro. well. not this fast, but u get the point.

in conclusion, it's time to transfer out all your porn important data into other medium.

SSD currently on route but 240gb only. Enough for boot drive. This'll be storage media.

On time I think because it won't make sense if it's off time. I have this HDD since 2012 and God knows how long it was out of factory before it came in my possession. rclxub.gif

ts, make sure to backup all your data, if you care for your data of course.
1 bad sector does look okay on layman eye, however if it already multiplied,then be extremely careful.

Your power on hours are 2 yrs plus, so actually, the HDD is much older than that, no?

The main issue is there has been 300k load/unload count and 5k power cycle count, this is very very high count, mechanically. Better change HDD, even though SMART assessment is still ok.

I don't know what's the storage capacity and generation the drive is, so can't comment but this is likely a very old drive.

Funny that you mention it. Actually I'm in a midst of playing with the HDD because I can't mount it on other system unless I boot it into its own system. Thing is its boot configuration fucked up(windows startup repair doesn't help as well as bootsec command lines) and can't access the files on it. The timing! bangwall.gif
Now thinking of cloning the disk and play with the clone first while having the original disk untouched.

Smart test can be quite useless sometimes.

The chip on board the hdd can fail without warning.

Since it's just beginning of 2019, I assume 6 years of use, should be time to retire the drive or to back it up to a new HDD.

Still can get some life out of it la. 6000 hours is almost at the end of a normal hard disk life. 3 years on average. Another indicator the drive is getting old is the temperature above 42c. Unless you have very packed chassis or badly located drive. I would not worry about it. If you do, just get another drive la.

My old system 1.5 to 2 years consider good liau for HDD. Usually they bad sector or even total collapse under 1 year. Even WD Black totally died on me under 1.5 years. Back then I almost always on my pc 24/7. Now using laptop I always switch off and mostly use ssd. I suggest it's time to buy new storage and back up your data.
