Hey
While surfing the net the other day, i got an error from Windows saying i should immediatly backup my hard drive.
I thought it was a pop-up so i just closed the window but after encountering it again i ran a test using CrystalDiskInfo and heres the result:

Samsung 1TB Hd103SJ

]

Thanks

It looks like you've got some bad sectors on the drive. Monitor the numbers and see if they are changing. In any case you may want to get a new hard drive and transfer the data over to it.

You have two bad sectors that have been replaced by backup sectors, I wouldn't worry about it, but I would monitor the number of bad sectors for any sudden increase over the next few weeks.

Should i just get a new drive if this is irreparable ?

Here are some more results :

It's not repairable. Either no new bad blocks will be found or other blocks will soon become bad which is why I said to monitor the numbers to see if they are increasing.

At the very least you should make a complete backup of the drive or any essential data in case it gets any worse.
