    SeaTools wasn't necessary anymore and would've given back 'failed'.

    With HDTune, look in the following for
    Benchmark, speed
    Error scan, amount of bad sectors present
    SMART, marked attributes
    - Yellow means that it is about to fail, in this case the amount of bad sectors are getting close to the amount of bad sector reallocations that the drive could handle.
    - Red means that it has failed

    Threshold is the limit of a SMART attribute, Data is how high or low it currently is.
    You'll mainly want to check the critical attributes, they give an indication of the physical state of the hard drive.

    In situations where bad blocks are present where the OS is installed not, the chance of malfunctions is too high.

    Else, it may be useful since there is usually quite some corruption present besides of bad blocks, fixing the corruption could buy some extra time.
