reallocated sector count "failed" - HD Tune


S

I'm getting a "FAILED" allocated sector count warning in HD Tune 2.5.
The values are as follows:

Samsung SV4002H (40 GB)

Current 100
Worst 100
Threshold 9
Data 2

If the current/worst values are still well above the threshold value,
why am I getting this warning?

If there are apparently only 2 reallocated sectors, is this something
to worry about?

See what the Everest SMART report shows.

There's more than one type of reallocated sector.

Usually with that type of drive that doesnt ship with very optimistic
'testing' of sectors and which reallocates those which dont turn out
to be that usable in the field like Maxtor does.

Bad sectors with Samsungs arent always due to the drive tho, they
can be due to external factors like temperature which can be fixed.

Seems HD Tune 2.5 is broken.

Usually not.
