    I gave up this scan. After 5 hours of scanning with Sea Tools, where the progress was 2% (!!!), I stopped it and disconnected my tested HDD.
    After a few minutes I connected it again and received such info (see attachment), the smaller one is info from my computer right after connecting the HDD.
    At night I will try to scan HD Tune (in full mode) for errors...

    The one critical screenshot we have yet to see is the is the SMART data, from either (though preferably both) the Hard Disk Sentinel SMART tab or the HD Tune Health tab. You may need to scroll and take several screenshots to show all the data.

    There are software used to test hardware.

    The best testing is to swap hardware and perform two tests:
    a) The new hardware is tested in the problematic computer.
    b) The hardware from the problematic computer is tested in another computer.

    The HD Tune SMART results were blank.
    So this software was not able to assess the SMART data.

    The HD Sentinel Health results found problems and predicted drive failure.
    The software uses a proprietary rating scale and displayed 0.

    The Sea Tools was not ran to completion.
    So there was no result for the long generic.
    The short generic had passed.

    For HP computers there is HP diagnostics.
    For HP warranty they will replace failed drives.
    They don't warranty drives that are predicted to fail.

    The HP diagnostics were not ran.

    The Sea Tool long generic is similar to the HP diagnostics.

    Some end users replace drives as soon as there is a problem displayed by SMART (predictor of problems).
    Other end users with backed up data will continue using a drive until the terminal event.

    Make sure your data is backed up.

    No based on HD Sentinel results.

    It would be best to:

    a) backup all data
    b) run Sea Tools long generic

    If the drive were in the computer the easiest testing is with the HP diagnostics.

    There are many tests for SMART data.
    Another is Crystal Disk:
    CrystalDiskInfo Crystal Dew World
    Post results for the standard edition.



    Also download and install: HWinfo64
    Free Download HWiNFO Sofware | Installer & Portable for Windows, DOS

    Launch the application > on the left side click drives > expand to view the applicable drive > click on it to display SMART and drive statistics > post images into the thread
