So guys my hard disk stopped working so a friend of mine gave me a 320gb WD caviar blue HDD that HDD had an error called current pending sector i fixed it by zeroing the HDD so my question is will that error come back? Btw, that HDD was manufactured in 2010 and it had been used for only 45 days in its lifetime

A pending sector is one that the hdd detected that it had difficulty readying and has scheduled it to be tested when it wasn't busy.
If it fails and data was succesfully moved it becomes a reallocated sector.
If it fails and data couldn't be recovered it becomes an uncorrectible sector.

If it passes, the drive keeps using it as normal.
