In case of an error, it is recommended to create a backup copy of important information immediately, because now the disk can fail completely at any time. However, there are errors that make data copying impossible. In this case, you can use special hard disk data recovery software - Hetman Partition Recovery.


Reduce The Disk Temperature

Sometimes a SMART error can be caused by exceeding the maximum temperature of the disk. This problem can be eliminated by improving the case ventilation. First of all, make sure that your computer has sufficient ventilation & that all coolers are in proper working order.

If you found and eliminated the ventilation problem, which helped to bring the disk temperature bachồng khổng lồ normal, this SMART error can never appear again.

"0xC5" In an SSD

Even if you have sầu no problems with an SSD performance, its operability is reducing slowly because SSD memory cells have a limited number of overwrite cycles. The wear resistance function minimizes this effect but never takes it away completely.

SSD disks have their specific SMART attributes which skết thúc signals about the state of disk memory cells. For example, "209 Remaining Drive Life," "231 SSD life left" etc. Such errors may occur when memory cell operability is reduced, & it means the information kept there can be damaged or lost.

How Can You Remix "0xC5 Current Pending Sector Count"?

SMART errors can be easily remix in BIOS (or UEFI) but all OS developers strongly discourage users from this step. Yet if the data on the hard disk is of little importance for you, displaying SMART errors can be disabled.

Here is the procedure to follow:

Restart the computer, và use combinations of keys shown on the loading screen (they depend on a specific manufacturer, usually "F2" or "Del") lớn go to BIOS (or UEFI).Go to Аdvanced > SMART settings > SMART self test. Set the value as Disabled.

Buy a New Hard Disk

Is It Worth Repairing an HDD?

It is important khổng lồ realize that any of the ways to lớn eliminate a SMART error is self-deception. It is impossible to lớn completely remove sầu the cause of the error, as it often involves physical wear of the hard disk mechanism.

To replace the hard disk components which operate incorrectly you can go to lớn a service center or a special laboratory dealing with hard disks.

However, the cost of work will be higher than the price of a new device, so it is justified only when you need lớn restore data from a disk which is no longer operable.

How lớn choose a new HDD?
