I am not shure about my WD20EARS 2 TB HDD and would be glad for a short advice, if I should go for a RMA?
Arguments for an RMA (see pics below) are >1000 reallocated sector count and some other values like “offline uncorrectable”.
(However, I was able to at least copy all data from the disk (~900 GB backup files) to another drive. I noted, that the copy-process stalled occasionally. I have not checked the integrity of all the recovered data and assume/hope that it is OK.)
An extended test with DLGDIAG found bad sectors and was not able to correct them.
Would you advice me to go into RMA?
