Hi I just brought a new SEGATE DISK for a couple of days. The smartctl –a shows some abnormal error on

Raw_Read_Error_Rate and Hardware_ECC_Recovered.

 

Also quite high for Seek_Error_Rate.

 

Would that indicate a problem on the disk itself?? Other than getting errors, I don’t seems to have problem with file operations.

 

Any help with be appreciated.

 

Thanks
