I bought a Samsung HD103SJ about 1.5 years ago... yesterday Windows didn't boot properly, CHKDSK found some error in system files and I was unable to use System Restore because it Windows prompt me the it unable to read files and maybe the HDD is damaged. I reinstalled Windows right now.

I've run Samsung official Diagnostic tool form CD (ESTOOL I think) and everything was OK, including the READ SURFACE SCAN which takes about 3 hours to complete.

But some SMART values are not good:

(E1) Load/Unload Cycle Count 100 100 0 925 Ok

Power On Time : 8830
Health Status : Ok


I mean "Raw Read Error Rate", "Write Error Rate", and maybe also "Load/Unload Cycle Count". I know that at least the first two should be 0.

What should I do?? I still have warranty. Can I replace it even if the are no bad sectors and the official diagnostic tool test was OK. Warranty cover for that?

Maybe the HDD will continue to work fine?

Thanks.

Benchmark is not good:

Also "Load/Unload Cycle Count" jumped from 925 to 932.
