I bought an Acer Aspire 8942G laptop on 26-03-2010 with a
Intel Core i7 cpu; Q 720 @ 1,60GHz 1,60GHz
RAM: 6 GB;
64 bit operating system with
HDD: WDC WD6400BEVT-22A0RT0; CAPACITY: 640GB
Windows 7 home premium.
Smart is giving me a warning message that my HDD is about to fail, but I downloaded WD's Data Lifegard and did the extended test which passed the hdd. What am I to make of this? Is it going to fail or not, if not how do I get smart to stop warning me?
Thank you for taking the time to respond.
HD tune : quick error scan = normal, but health failed on reallocated sector count with a value of 134 [current]; 134 [ worst]; 140 [ threshold]; 521 [ data]; failure [ status]
