S.M.A.R.T.status BAD, backup and replace

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I was had a HD as external drive, WD Black 2TB, but then I re-formatted it and thought to use it on my desktop PC with Windows 8. But every time i was trying to boot I was getting this error:
S.M.A.R.T.status BAD, backup and replace

I took the HD out of this desktop PC as I couldn't boot with it, on some other PC with Windows Vista I installed HD Tune software and made all the tests with that HD and didn't find anything wrong with it.

I took it back to Windows 8 setup and I'm still getting that S.M.A.R.T.status BAD, backup and replace error.

There is no data on the HD, warranty expired. Do I throw that HD into trash?

You could always try some stress tests before you bin it. Some people have had success by freezing hard drives, but I don't think it has a very high success rate. 

You could also try percussive maintenance ;)
