500G WD Blue RMA question

Hey all. Ive got a few bad sectors (now reallocated) and my drive is constantly CHKDSKing every other bootup. Should I RMA the drive right now or wait till it fails completely?? SMART status is ok… I have since removed all data on the drive but this is the path my previous RMA’d drives take before they fail completely. Will they honor a replacement at this time?

WD will honor the replacement an any time during warranty, you don’t need to wait for the drive to completely fail.

WD is very nice in this type of cases, they will replace the drive for you.

good day! I had expiriencing not a good thing about WD blue, I brought it for almost 2weeks and suddenly it doesnt work the bad things about these i didnt have a chance to take my very important files. A few years ago i buy a 2TB WD green i was slightly lucky because it works for 1 and half years compare to my other brand HDD it almost 3 years it still in good condition. I am asking here if there’s a chance to replace my HDD WD blue 500GB and take my files back?


 we hope it is a much better one!
