WD20EARS never completes long SMART test?


#1

48 hours ago, having discovering that my WD20EARS drive was showing relocated sectors, I decided to run the long SMART test.  For the past 24 hours, it has reported that the test has 10% remaining.  I unmounted all the partitions on the device for the last 12 hours, hoping that would help, but it appears that it might be stuck.

Also, considering that this drive is only ~2 months old and already has reallocated sectors, I am wondering if WD would replace the drive since it is still under warranty and, considering I have another WD drive in the same machine with 4.5 years of powered-on time and 0 relocated sectors, I am not very happy that this drive is already showing signs of failure.
