    Hey guys,

    My PC has one failing had, I'm totally aware of that
    Aaand I don't care a bit, ran failingly good for a couple a years.
    BUT its getting really annoying to constantly have this windows pop-up:
    'Please back-up all your data!'

    Google around a bit, but rarely found a useful thread, hoping someone has a neat idea.
    Running win8, Seagate hdd, ~4 years old
    I sure disabled smart-hdd,
    And notifications over hdds in windows notification center

    Thanks in advance for any hint! :p

    Just keep ignoring the warnings. Don't worry, they'll stop.

    If you keep ignoring the warning, eventually the drive will fail completely and you will loose all of the data on it. That is why you are being warned to backup the data while you still can back it up. After it fails, it will be too late.

    Thanks for the tool, will definitely do that!
    I know its basically a good thing, but ran with these faults for quite some time and it worked. :)

    I know but they come back. -_-

    I know, thanks for the warning, but its just a backup drive.


    Thanks you all for your help!
    Much appreciated!
    Kind Regards

    I know what you mean, had a issue with 1 pending relocation on freenas which nagged the hell out of me.
    I pulled the drive and ran seatools and the problem disappeared, that was 3 years ago.
    Relocating bad sectors is normal in most drives even before it leaves the factory.
    In most cases you need to analyse the trend rather than the occurrence of isolated bad blocks.
