Is it failing...? Tags: Hard Drives Computer Health Storage Last response: March 14, 2012 8:21 AM in Storage Share emandemon March 12, 2012 9:24:40 PM Well my hard drive was fine until today, my computer has been freezing a lot and I'm scared to do anything in fear of it crashing again. I downloaded a program to tell me the health and everything for my hard drives, and it says "Bad" for the health. But, sometimes I don't really trust programs because you never know, right? I looked at the statistic marked in red and it said: "Reallocated Sectors Count: Current: 45 Worst: 45 Threshold: 140" I have no idea what this means, can someone tell me?
