Hi all, I recently upgraded to an ssd and I am using my 1 year old spinpoint F3 for my games, music, etc. . . However, now I am getting a warning about an impending disk failure on the F3. I have run chkdsk multiple times and have yet to find any error. Is this is a software problem, or do I need to replace my F3? Thanks.

Update: Ran the Samsung testing utility(ESTool). Did a full scan and it found zero problems.

Have you run HDTune or some app that can check the SMART values? Perhaps the remapped sectors is beyond it's threshold or something.
