Reseat the sata data cable .....both ends.... test.Here is a screenshot of the S.M.A.R.T. status of my hard drive.
I noticed the Write Error Rate values had increased from 3 to 8 recently.
I have 2 questions.
What do these 2 values mean? (read and write error rate)
Were some data on the drive corrupted?
Your drive looks very fine coz it has no values of write and read error rate though it has been running over 10000 hours.I wouldn't worry about the values unless you get a caution.
yours is very similar
Im relieved to hear that.Typically writing errors won't cause data corruption
Is the re-writting counted as write error n the former case?The drive can either re-write the data at the same spot or find another place to write it.
Should I replace it if the values keeps increasing?WD drives should ideally have non-zero raw values for the read and write error rates. I would watch these attributes and see how they develop.
As you mentioned, the error occured when i tried to trransfer data from the drive using my former briken PC.Your UDMA CRC Error Count points to communications errors in your SATA link at some time in the past
Yes.Is this an external drive?
OK I'll do thatI would keep eye on values and see how they go.
So HDDs are better at storing important data than SSDs still now?At least hdd give clues, ssd just stop.
Got it.I would backup anything on it. Not from any signs its giving, just from its age. Things start to fall apart as we get older.
