WD 200GB bad sectors?
A friend send me a program to sjek your hdd health status performance etc the other day.
I didnt experience any problems with my hdd's but to my surprise the tool gave an error on my newest drive ,western digital 200gb (WD2000JB).
My question is, should i start to make backups? or could this be some kind of error in this tool?
Other tools like western digital's tools and standard windows stuff give no errors at all.
EDIT: And ofcource if you know what kind of error this is exactly you may inform me about that too

Count of reallocated sectors. When the HDD finds a read/write error, it will mark this sector as "reallocated" and transfer data to the special reserved area. That's why on a modern HDD you can't see "BAD blocks" while testing the surface - all bad blocks are hidden in reallocated sectors. The more sectors reallocated (i.e.lower attribute value), the worse the condition of disk surface.
I don't see any problem, the threshold is 140 and atm it's at 198, you still have a lot of spare sectors. It's probably some bug, try another S.M.A.R.T. tool, just to be shure
And you should always make a back-up from time to time.
