I faced a problem Last night, windows speed was very low, and some of my drives did not working good. I tested my hard drive with Hard Disk Sentinel 5.61.10, and it showed me a 327 days renaming HDD life, but when I tested with AIDA64 Extreme PRO it was saying there is no any problems that should occur in future days(Die). Although I checked my HDD(WD Blue 500 GB) with CrystalDiskInfo It showed me a caution(Current pending sector count: 115).

what I should do Exactly? Should I buy a new HDD?(which one do you prefer?)

keep in mind I have important data on my HDD!

You should replace hdd

I would suggest an ssd over a hdd as replacement, 500gb minimum. Way faster too

Should I Replace My Hard Drive If It Has Pending Sectors?
Really depends on how much you value your data and how well you can handle downtime in the event of a disk failure. Personally I consider a drive with pending or reallocated sectors as a drive no longer fit for production and my uses. If I see pending or reallocated sectors climbing, I immediately purchase a new hard drive and move this drive to non-critical functions or use it for testing in other machines I own.

If you’re using this drive for a non-critical purpose and have a backup of all data on the drive (or the data isn’t very important) you can continue to use the drive until it dies. If your primary boot drive or media storage drive has pending sectors I would strongly suggest backing up any important data on the disk and replacing it as soon as possible.

you could run this as a 3rd opinion - https://support.wdc.com/downloads.aspx?lang=en&p=3

Sorry, i didn't look at test, I just went from your description and didn't see the ssd.

The only Western Digital hdd I have had to replace in the last 15 years died from overuse (and it was a velociraptor) so I would just use them again. I am currently using them now as a storage drive, 3tb drive.
You can probably get a larger capacity for similar price as you paid before now.

HDD Power On Hours : 14748 hours isn't that long really , only about 614.5 days
think the ssd in my last system was on longer
old photo


I can guess it was the previous boot disk since its on time is way longer than the ssd is
SSD Power On Hours : 671 hours

HDD last a lot longer when they aren't boot drives. the hdd in my last PC is still almost brand new after 5 years

This:

"keep in mind I have important data on my HDD! "

Have you backed up that important data and verified that the data is recoverable and readable?

You should have at least two backups in different locations.

Anything you do could cause drive failure and loss of that important data.

At least get the data backed up while the system is functional.....

You guessed correctly. I use hdd and ssd together.
I use ssd for booting, and hdd for storage.

I have been using this HDD for 6 or 7 years. I never changed it(it was on laptop)
