I have a seagate 2TB internal HDD bought in December 2012 which is out of warranty. Recently it has SMART errors related to relocated sector count, bad sector count . Does Seagate do repair with a charge ? Is there anyway to fix this HDD ?
That's pretty wrong. Seagate does make good drives. I myselves using 4 Seagate drives along with 1 WD, 1 Hitachi and 1 Toshiba. It all depends on how to treat your drives and how much you care for them.
Never had any issues with either hdds.
Its not a bad drive right now. Every drive has some reserved sectors for relocating bad ones. Right now it has done that right now and coping with the bad sectors. Who knows this drive might go on to work for few more years or may be it will die next day. But to be on the safe side, better to sell it off while its alive. Ofcourse after informing the prospective customer and offering a handsome discount.
