heres a scan of my hdd ... i have no idea if this is good or bad ¬_¬
the reallocated sector count has not changed... can i ask something
some of the files ive been transfering over 4 harddrives for like over 7 years... i have some files on this new hdd that are like 9 years old... could this also cause a problem for the harddrive as the file has been transferred so much it could cause an issue?
the other day the error count went sky high like 251 or something but now its 100 again :S
Transferring files won't mess anything up. Also, the count should not decrease. SMART values either increase or stay as is. Are you reading the "raw" value? Also, most values are reported in hex. They need translated to decimal. In your intial post the hex value was 34 reallocated sectors. 34 hex = 52 errors.
