    The disk looks good- then there's chkdsk of course to check the NTFS file system - if you've not already run it.

    I just took a screenshot of the values from HDTune that weren't visible in the screenshot from earlier.

    Also, is the "Error checking" window I've included in the screenshot what you were referring to when you said "chkdsk"?

    Thanks very much!

    Does the most recent screenshot I uploaded give anymore information about the health of my hard drive?

    Everything in the S.M.A.R.T. data suggests a healthy drive. Perhaps in your case the most significant parameter is '(09) Power On Hours Count' from the first of your screenshots. At 24367 hours that's about 2.8 years.

    There's little hard data on drive life expectancy, but the cloud storage company Backblaze has published what are probably the best real-life statistics. They describe themselves in 2013 as "a company that keeps more than 25,000 disk drives spinning all the time" and consumer-grade disks at that.

    Backblaze said:
    Reliability engineers use something called the Bathtub Curve to describe expected failure rates. The idea is that defects come from three factors: (1) factory defects, resulting in “infant mortality”, (2) random failures, and (3) parts that wear out, resulting in failures after much use....

    ...We are not seeing that much “infant mortality”, but it does look like 3 years is the point where drives start wearing out.
    https://www.backblaze.com/blog/how-l...k-drives-last/

    So at nearly three years use you are right to start being concerned - but not to get too worried yet. Just make sure you make regular system images (just in case). You may well get up to three more years out of it.

    With 40,000 hard drives, Backblaze knows a lot about the reliability of hard drives and shares the statistics:

    • 78% of drives survive more than 4 years.
    • The median hard drive survives 6 years.
