    I would not care about it, I would buy a 32GB SSD in second hand, put it in a available Sata Port and use ms readyboost for fetching windows Vista, windows 7, windows 8.1, windows 10. You're HDD goes forevermore.:cheers:

    uh... bad idea. The OP's sector count has climbed above the point of being reliable. This only degrades and that drive needs to be replaced asap. A 500gb Samsung SSD can be purchased here in the U.S. for around $75. Can't say where the OP is or what kind of price but something along that line is what is needed

    just my idea thought, btw done it myself since windows 7 and the 2 WD Blue 500 GB in RAID 0 are still in very good health and the nowadays cheap 30GB kingston SSD to.

    yup.... you can put Windows on a cheap kingston 30 gb ssd, but you might not be able to do anything else with it. imho, A 30gb ssd is just too small.

    Run the command (as Administrator): CHKDSK C: /f/r/x which will need 2-4h to complete. If there still some bad Sectors etc. (not in the exclusion list till now) it will add such bad space to its own Windows exclusion list and not try to use them further on. Windows uses its own exclusion list to manage such bad spaces. That's why it's important to use the CHKDSK command even the user used another 3.party App upfront which may not add new bad spaces to the Drives own exclusion list.

    That said, it doesn't matter what App I use for to check a drive if that drive is running in a Windows environment, I always use the CHKDSK command as last before using that drive again. I also use any newly added drive I add to the Windows environment to test-check with CHKDSK special if that drive was used before already.

    No windows was never on the kingston 30GB SSD and will never be installed, I'm using readyboost to fetch or "cache" The windows installs on RAID HDD for many years.
