Help! Current pending sector count warning - Western Digital Community
According to this link, its happening because the HDD's firmware is thinking there is still usable data in those sectors and is hesitating to overwrite it.
You can do one thing:
Open command prompt with admin rights and wtype chkdsk follewed by the partition lable.
If your HDD is under warranty, then RMA it.
thanks for the tip. i will check it every day.it should be fine if there was only 1 current pending sector.just make sure that this value does not increase(check once a day) & if it doesn't then your hdd is fine.
it is almost 5 year old.
Now the problem seems to be gone. I clicked on "caution" and set everything to 0. Now it shows "good". Is there any problem in doing so?
