Of course smartd noticed about the SMART attribute Current Pending Sector Count: 1 Now I receive a smartd warning after every selftest of the HDD, because the number of failed self tests increased (attached). What I read about reallocating the defect block under Windows 7 I must admit I did not right understand. As far as I understood the disk reallocates the block after some time. After a week this did not happen yet. I tried the tool that came with smartmontools for windows (fix_badsectors.cmd with dd.exe). But that corrupted the boot partition (system not found at boot) and didn't change the SMART attributes. So I recovered the boot partition. Please, can someone give me advice with dealing with that problem? Thank you very much.
