So I have a HD I know is bad because crystaldiskinfo says so because it has 149 reallocated bad sectors, 19 uncorrectable bad sectors and 49500 power on hours.
Now I’ve unplugged the bad disk and put it aside.
I want to get myself a huge hard disk in January or Feburary (Hopefully 7-8TB 3.5" exist then), and then I intend to copy everything from the bad disk to my new one, and then just throw the bad disk away. I won’t need anything from the bad disk until that time.
Now, my question is, can not using the disk for 6-8 months cause any problems?
In the past I’ve had disks I havn’t touched for 2 years or so just not spin up when plugged in
