Is my hard drive healthy?

Here is the S.M.A.R.T data from hd tune. Is my hardrive healthy? I've only had it for a few months and some things are highlighted. I also noticed the Raw read error rate is pretty high. Is my hard drive slowly dying?

  1. Hi,

    download hard disk sentinel trial and/or Cristal disk, you will get more info out of them.
    The picture reports warning, but status is ok.

    hard disk sentinel will tel you if you are getting too many bad sectors or other problems.

    The raw value of attribute 01 is a sector count, not an error count.

    See http://www.users.on.net/~fzabkar/HDD/Seagate_SER_RRER_HEC.html

    As for the highlighted attributes, they are perfect. The reason that HD Tune has picked them out is that it blindly thinks that any attribute whose normalised value is close to the threshold is suspicious.
