Drive is starting to show SMART errors with excessive bad sector substitution, but is still running fine at this time.
I want to get ahead of the game, so I have backed up all critical files and made reinstall disks using the recovery utility on the machine.
Now, I need to get a new drive. Sine the BEVT-22ZCT0 is discontinued, I can only find used or high priced new ones.
Can I use a later model WD scorpio blue SATA 2 drive as a replacement? Is there a compatibility table somewhere?
