I bought my external HDD in March, and use this only for data backup. 30 hours on, ONLY. I conect this only one time in mounth, to backup.

But today when I conect my External HDD, the CrystalDisk and HD Sentinel says that "Current Pending Sector Count", and Sentinel's Hd Health go down to 93%.

When I try to run "Short Self Test" i got this message: "Test Failed By Read Element 0X79"
