Bad Sectors on SSD?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was working on a friends computer earlier today trying to narrow down the cause of crashes and such, and it turns out both his hard drives ae bad.

Here is a picture of his WD Green drive, his boot drive is even worse.
Im wondering if he dropped it off the desk or something and didnt tell me.
510

Anyway, While I was looking at HDTune I noticed that my X25 has 3 reallocated sectors.

2 Questions.

1) How worried should I be
2) Is there a way I can repair them?

Hoping against hope I can do something and im not going to have to replace my SSD anytime soon. redface.gif

Disk check on a HDD will mark bad sectors. It won't repair the data, it will just tell the hard drive "don't use sector X".

A SSD should automatically mark and relocate bad sectors. Over provisioning a SSD will improve it's ability to do this, especially if you have alot of bad sectors.

If the number of bad sectors in increasing during daily use, then you have hardware somewhere that is about to fail.

If both a SSD and a HDD are going bad at the same time, well....the chances of both drives going bad at once is like one in a billion. I would suspect a motherboard/powersupply problem, or your computer was hit by a surge or a brownout.

Ignore it.

Usually SMART data from HD tune can't be trusted on SSDs.
