Question about Maxtor Hard Drive
I built a new computer and wanted to put the HD from my old system into it. I have all the right connections, but the hard drive gives disk read failiure messages and S.M.A.R.T. errors in the new system.
When I put the drive back in my old pc it works like always.
Smart errors are telling you the drive you are inserting will fail soon. It has recorded errors that indicate that drive is no longer usable. The drive still may work right now. But there is no telling when it will bite the dust. It could be 2 hours, it could be 2 months. I would trash the drive with smart errors.
