HDTune+smartmon error = grounds for RMA?
Wow I just jinxed myself when I posted that I didn't have an HDD failure in this thread... http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...g-suicide.html
Anyway, a day after posting to that thread (no ill feelings towards any of you; all my fault :thumb:), my primary hard drive, a 1 TB Samsung HD103UJ started to exhibit signs of failing. Here's the sequence of events.
Samsung's HDD tool says there's nothing wrong with my disk, but my Unix smart tool and HDTune say there are errors.
Are my SMART and HDTune errors enough to RMA/exchange the drive? I know I didn't let either of the non-Samsung tests complete fully, but if you think I can get an exchange or RMA off one of them, I'll complete the test and use it as evidence.
EDIT/UPDATE: I just ran smartctl again, and now the SMART test "Completed without error". I take it my HDD's firmware is trying to cover up the bad sector?
