I don't see any indication of a dying disk. Am I missing something ?


A nice table of the SMART Attributes is


Thanks for the link, but how do you read the table from the disk ?
I'm confused because all 'VALUEs' are the same as 'WORST'. So I looked at 'RAW_VALUE' where the 'Reallocated_Event_Count' is 1, so 1 bad sector realloacted isn't that bad. And Reallocated_Sectors_Ct is 0 (raw value). Or should I read this as 'tried to reallocate one sector, but failed' ?
I compared with my own laptop where I put in a new drive about a month ago. Reallocated_Event_Count is 200 200 for VALUE and WORST, RAW_VALUE is 0.
Of the 18 entries, there are 6 that are different for VALUE and WORST.
