I have just got my hard drive and after running crystal disk info, hd tune and HDDScan it says it has reallocated sector count value 100, worst 100, raw 181, threshold 036.

It is brand new drive and i checked it before putting data in it with above mentioned utilities. After putting data its the same and its been a week now.

I have attached a screenshot please help me decide to send hard drive back to vendor or should i keep it ? hard drive is working fine though.

Thanks for your time.

I would recommend you send it back to your vendor or RMA it as they call it.

There is no permanent fix or workarounds to reallocated sectors. While you can reformat the drive, and that would (should) remap those sectors, in my experience, once it starts to happen, then it will happen again in a while, but there is no problem in doing once before returning it.

Now all seagates have 1 year warranty, so try to reformat and check it for a few days, if the problem still persists than the best thing would be is to return it.
