Hi,

I recently experience serious system (XP SP3) lags and random high cpu usage. I did a lot of troubleshootings and suspect that my HDD is the culprit.

Can someone please help me to evaluate the HDDScan SMART report?



Thanks!

Looks like the HDD had bad sector....

first backup the important data before try anything else....

had u try scandisk /r (deep scan)..

after that keep an good eyes on those smart data if the relocation or uncorrectable error count increase...

replace the HDD... (or claim warranty "RMA")

I have just run a surface test with HDDSCan and it found bad sectors... It's weird that window's Disk Error Checking didn't find them.

After that keep eyes on the bad sector count...

if it increased.. then the HDD need to be replaced..

if it not increase, it still fine for data drive but don't store important data in it...

microsoft scandisk useful for first aid,

for more deep scan u can use the free tools from HDD manufacturer to test (seagate / WD / etc).....
