[RESOLVED] Hard drive trouble (S.M.A.R.T reads good & bad)
OK, not sure what to do. I have a laptop that gave me a warning that my hard drive was going to fail. I put it in my work PC and on POST I get a S.M.A.R.T failure.
Now, I ran "EasyRecovery Pro" and used the "Disk Diagnostics". The S.M.A.R.T. status check fails, physical drive problems have been found.
BUT, when I run the short or extended test it shows no errors. Also if I run "Drive Test" all tests come out normal.
SO, is the drive bad?
If the drive is good is there a way to remove the S.M.A.R.T. data from the drive?
