Hi

After a power outage on ‎11-‎3-‎2013 at 15:58:15 (hour from windows log book), I checked the SMART-log using HD Tune,

this is what it says:

Number Date/Time Current Worst ThresholdData Temp
1 11-8-2012 3:05:36 100 100 36 0
......
28 12-8-2012 0:36:44 100 100 36 0
29 9-11-2012 17:27:47 100 100 36 0
30 10-1-2013 21:47:03 100 100 36 120
31 11-1-2013 1:12:32 100 100 36 120
32 12-3-2013 22:00:29 100 100 36 1059
.....
210 13-3-2013 1:07:01 100 100 36 1059 [last line]


I suppose a few sectors where damaged after the outage.
How bad is this? If the count stays 1059, will I be fine? Or do I need to fragment the drive or will I still be at risk of losing data? (I'm making a fresh backup anyway, just in case...).

BUT what about the 120 reallocated sectors before the ourage???

Thanks for your help!
