Hard Drive health status is poor. Should I contact manufacturer for a replacement drive?

We recommend taking backup of the data on your hard drive and then contact hard drive manufacturer.

Hard Drive status is calculated by SMART values. There are several scenarios for a hard drive status showing poor. Manufacturers have their own limitations and perform rigorous test on a hard drive to be eligible for replacement.

We recommend letting the hard drive cool down completely and try the tests again. If you find the same results again we strongly recommend taking a backup of your hard drive and contact the hard drive manufacturer.
