Hitachi Drive S.M.A.R.T Data Health

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well I've had this 500GB Hitachi drive as my main OS drive since August last year, and this month I purchased a Samsung F3. I heard the F3's are great drives, but I the Hitachi drive is still my main OS disk.

Anyway, just because I was bored I looked at the SMART data in HD Tune for the Hitachi drive, and I get a 'warning' status due to something named 'Ultra DMA CRC Error Count', with a value of '200'. Is this something I should worry about? All my data is on this particular drive, so should I move it off to the F3 and RMA the Hitachi drive immediately?

Or is this easily fixable? Opinions would be great.

Oh, and if anyone can comment on the reliability/performance of Hitachi drives they have had experiences with or owned, I'd be really interested.

SMART can be used as a warning system. I would back up your data to the F3, regardless.

Switching the cable MIGHT work. Switch the cable with the one on the F3, provided the F3 doesn't have that error.

And as for Hitachi reliability, they're commonly known as the Hitachi DeathStar...

I have hitachi, seagate, Samsung, WD and even a maxtor 500 GB thats still kickin. I've never had any provblems with my hitachi. The only hard drive I've ever had fail was a 500 AAKS WD.. ever. I even have some old 40GB WD drives that are like 10 years old that work fine.


Anyways, CRC errors usually have to do with the cable, not always, but most of the time. I had a CRC warning on an external HD once that used a super cheap eSATA cxble once. It kept coming out and had to be wiggled to work correctly. After I replaced the cable everything was fine. You should always back up your data though.

Thanks for the help guys, +rep'd. Makes me think getting the F3 was a good idea
