I wanna know if something is normal or a problem and what i can do about it.
I have a brand new WD30EZRX that i bought a couple weeks ago.
There seems to be a bad problem with it. The load/unload cycle count is getting very very high.
Already at 7474 and i did get +3000 in only one day for NO reason.
In comparison my Caviar Black that i use for my OS is only at 200-250 and it has 6 months.
For informations, i use my caviar green for storage and i didn’t copy any files on it these past 3 days, and even so it keeps getting bigger and bigger and bigger load/unload cyles.
If i understood this right, it’s VERY bad cos the disk could die early (the smart infos give 198/198 and will decrease till reaching 0 at this rate in a few months, can’t believe thay).
What’s the problem ? Should i return it ?
I can’t believe i am at near 8000 cycle counts in 3 weeks. Unbelievable.
Thanks in advance if you can help me.
