Crystal Disk Info Errors

Hello all,

I used Crystal Disk Info for the very first time. Thing is I was shocked to see this.



For Drive T I did the chkdsk /f but the most weird thing was it shows no bad sectors on the drive what so ever see screenshot below



The rest of the drives marked as caution show this







Now can someone be kind enough please to explain these to me. I am a noob at this so I need simple English as what to do and how to do it please. I would really appreciate all your help.

In the meantime I have started to make a backup of my Drive T as I am writing this to you. Please help.

I will answer in simple terms. The drive marked bad must be backed up. You may lose your stuff at any time
The drives that show caution are not quite as bad, but again it may fail. Backup your stuff now. I would think about buying a new hard drive. The hard drive may fail at any time. It will cost a few dollars now, but will save you a lot of pain and more dollars down the road.

Once you get a bad rating, there is nothing that can be done, except hope that you back up before the hard drive dies. Once you get backed up you can make a check disk
In step 4 be sure to check both boxes
Disk Check
Once you get a bad rating, the fix may only buy a little time. In fact, trying to fix that type of damage, may cause the hard drive to die sooner.
I would bring the computer into a shop. Have the pros check it and if they agree buy a new hard drive.

Like I posted before that disc marked as bad was already check vis chkdsk /f option and I have already posted the screenshot of it



There are no bad sectors on the disc as seen in the above screenshot (posted again) ???

Then Crystal is picking up errors not picked up by chkdsk. Chkdsk looks for only certain errors.
