    Cool

    You could run a chkdisk via windows to see if it confirms Sentinels results. If it does do not worry as it says on report it not bad enough for return under warranty. But it giving you a chance to buy a new disk ready for when it does fail. Do an image backup as soon as you can so you can restore the image to the new disk if needed. ( Best to make sure the new disk is same size or larger than your original to make it easier for restoring).

    I agree, run a chkdsk /R to find and fix bad sectors. You better make sure you have an up to date backup and monitor the disk regularly.

    Thanks Rui and Clive
    Have run chkdsk but nothing showed up.
    I do run Macrium backups on a weekly schedule.
