Current Pending Sector Count Warning


I got a WD5001AALS-00L3B2 whit Current Pending Sector Count warning. I´m using CrystalDiskinfo 3.6.4.

What can I do?


not a huge problem

pending sector count is a sector that later can be or not remaped

It can become a huge problem.  Back in Dec 2010, one of my Caviar Black drive have having too many “pending sectors…” message in CyrstalDiskinfo.  It was taking > 1 hour to boot my PC.  Windows Data LifeGuard diagnostics was constantly failing on the “Quick Test.”   I RMAed it this past January.
