It only concerns me where there are conflicting opinions. Running a BIOS quick check says failure and S.M.A.R.T. Drive says healty. Thought someone might have experienced same problem and had definitive answer. Guess the "owner" can just wait and see...hope they are not in the middle of work when all their data crashes.

Only one I know of off the top of my head is the one Western Digital gives you to use with their drives.

So, the "The Tom's Hardware community team" woould like me to select a best answer to this post.

Does anyone think there is an "answer" to this problem?

Have not seen one yet...

I guess there is no program which can say the HDD will crash or not...well let it die and I'll autopsy the body and let you know.

Still running strong...must be just an abnormality and of no general global interest.

Can someone reply with "not a subject to study" or something similar so I can select as best answer and get rid of this post?

Thanks

not a subject to study.

Honestly, I think you are fine. One of my HDDs reads as bad in Vista, but when scanned in other computers/OSes, it reads as fine. Just be sure to back up your data, which you should do anyway regardless of drive condition.
