You might try your disk read rate with HDTune (free version). It will test the rate from one end of the platter to the other.

No the same.

Here's the pic.

Does it matter if i ran the benchmark while steaming video?

Maybe, but that doesn't look good. Try again without the video.

OK. So there is nothing wrong with your drive rates. The file transfer rate seems normal to me considering these drive rates.

That is a pretty high reallocated sector count though. Personally I would replace it, but at least keep an eye on it and back it up.

Dear users. I know that last post in this thread was 1550 days ago, but I was looking today answer for similar question and found this thread. I even registered on this forum, because I'm sick of that type of "help" I can found on many forums, including this one. Some guy have problem with transfer drop, and none of you have any experience with that type of problem (obviously), so you asked guy for more test, including S.M.A.R.T. And here you are - you see some screenshot with yellow mark instead of green and it's like victory to you - "here is your problem, man! reallocation value is too high! horray". Sorry guys, but this is b***t. You still don't know why that happens and I get no answer too when I was looking for it.

At least I have SOME experience and can check not stupid S.M.A.R.T. only (which in my case says that everything is good, green and nothing bad happens), but also diskmon and procmon for example. And I saw, in my case, that after copying lot of files, speed is going down for few minutes. If I abort transfer, I still see HDD activity for files I already copied (and it's not buffer flush, because it happens also when I copying files without buffering), so first I suspect indexing (which I turned off), then updating MFT. And because drive is old, this takes long time and can slow down other processess. But it's still my guessing, nothing solid. And nothing more I can get becuse on internet I can read thousand of useless requests for S.M.A.R.T. or other tests like that instead of some personal experience and knowledge. Its a shame.
