I purchased a used WD6401AALS and after using Data Lifeguard to do a quick test, full write of zeros, and then extended test, it said bad sectors were found after the extended test completed. It then ask, do you want to repair? To which I clicked ,yes. It said it the repair was successful and I then shut down the computer as it was late. Turned it on again the next day and ran full write zeros and a extended test again, but this time no errors were reported.
SMART tests in Data lifeguard are passes, is it going to die or “fixed” for now?
