I have recently been receiving warning messages from Windows 7 indicating that my hard drive will fail soon.
When I downloaded and ran WD’s Lifeguard Diagnostic the quick test passes, but when I look at the smart failure details the one thing that does fail is “Spin up Time” which shows an ID of 3, Value of 247, Threshold of 21, Worst of 3 and Warranty of 1.
Is there anything that can be done about this error message, or is the drive defective?
Also, does the Warranty 1 indicate that the drive is still under warranty and can be replaced?
Any help would be appreciated.
