145 reallocated sectors isn't particularly high nor is the rate of reallocation. Each time a sector is reallocated you will see a visible glitch and there is nothing that fix-disk can do to help. If the glitches are sufficiently irritating then replacing the hard drive is the only solution.Hello - the realloc sector count on my 500Gb hard drive is increasing by 2 or 3 each day (it's now at 145), many recordings are now glitchy and running the fix disk doesn't appear to have made any difference.
Yes that is the correct type; I have been using one for well over a year with no problems.I'm now looking at getting hold of a 2 Tb drive to replace the existing one. Would this be an suitable one to go for?
