    Hey all!

    I just ran a check of my disks with HDtune Pro and a few errors came up:

    Anything to be concerned about?

    Cheers!

    In all the years that I used this program, I don't think I ever got a reliable reading from it.
    Short answer, no idea.
    I suggest you have a backup of everything you don't want to lose, and then just live. :)

    On an SSD, I'm not keen on whether to pass judgment or not. But, I do think I may run a different scan from a different program to see how the results compare.

    Fair enough, thanks for the replies guys. I've got my important files in the cloud, so It won't be the end of the world. I just thought I might be proactive :)

    Friendly suggestion, stop using these programs. Anxiety disorder = using them. :) In the end the almost never predict when/if the hdd will die. They just make you feel worried all the time.

    I don't know how often i've seen screenshots and used programs that reported a range of things that threw up false positives or warnings that ended up being just normal opperation.

    My trust is diagnostic software ran within windows from various 3rd parties has a negative value when using 0/10

    I mostly just use seagate seatools diagnostics bootable disk for testing all drivers... NOT ssd's as they fall within a different system.

    Memtest86+ for memory...

    and a range of stress tests for other tasks...
