WD40FRX RED bad sectors :(

hello dear everyone,

I need help and advice.

I own 2 x WD40FRX RED … both are in my QNAP NAS.

NAS reported that one of the disc had bad sectors, 28 of them (I performed full scan with QNAP NAS admin tool).

Discs are only 3 months in use.

Will this be covered under warranty? What to do?

Copy paste from my NAS:

Message: [Storage & Snapshots] Finished scanning for bad blocks on disk “Host: Disk 2”. Bad blocks detected: 28.

197 Current Pending Sector , Raw Value = 28

Hi Keano16,

I would suggest you to take the drive out of the NAS device and run test on the drive using WD Drive Utilities in order to isolate the issue with the drive.

Refer the link provided below to test the drive using WD Drive Utilities.
