Hello there,


I upgraded my laptop to Windows 10 at the end of 2016 with the aid of this forum and have been using it every since without any major problems. However, I am aware that all this time Crystal Disk Info has been showing that the hard drive has been showingsigns of failing.


Please could somebody look at the following Crystal Disk reports let me know whether the drive has deteriorated very much since Windows 10 was installed.


Here is the report just after the upgrade:




And here is the latest:




Many thanks,

Hello Chris,


The drive looks to be in pretty much the same condition in each screenshot tbh.


Stick to your back up regime and keep an eye on the CrystalDisk info readings, if the reallocated sector count starts dropping or you get any other amber warnings I would suggest you replace the HDD, you will be able to use your cloning skills  :thumbsup:

The temp in the 2nd one is a little warmer. It could just be you took the screen shot after the laptop had been on a longer time.
