I ran Western Digital DataLife Guard Diagnostics to check smart dat see illustration below http://img221.imageshack.us/img221/7200/99373824.jpg what really bothers me is the data above threshold on the new drive. What is weird is that the data is almost identical to the old drive that i thought i had to replace and the drive before that....... My motherboard is a ga-p35-s3. Can anyone help?
