    The "Reallocated Sector Count" (ID 5) has a value of "1" under "Warranty" . What does this mean? ... I think that "reallocated sector" count of "1" under "Warranty" in the WD tool means something other than error count...
    According to the WD Community...

    I believe the warranty column is identifying those SMART attributes that are life critical or "warranty-able", not those which have failed. If the value of any of these attributes drops below the respective threshold, then you will be entitled to a warranty replacement. Wear-and-tear attributes such as Power On Hours Count would be non-warranty-able.

    Big thanks for that information. Just what I thought - that "1" under reallocated sectors does not mean there was 1 reallocated sector. So from what I can gather, there are no reallocated sectors and according to all my S.M.A.R.T. programs, there is nothing to be concerned about. At this point I don't know what caused that "bad block" issue but I've been copying large files using fastcopy back and forth for a couple hours now between my main HDD and a 2nd internal drive, and haven't run into any other issues. I basically filled most of my main HDD partition and copied it back with no issues.
