Imminent disk failure

So today I found out that one of my 2TB drives has started to show signs of failure. Here is a quick screenshot.

SMART shows that the drive has “End-to-End_Error”, which suggest that there is a mismatch of data between the host and the drive. In other words, the drive will fail anytime.

So I looked at how long the drive has been used and it says 61753 hours which translates to 7.05 years. I think the drive has serve its purpose after all these years.


Time for a new WD Red 4TB 🙂
