I have a new Hitachi drive that Sony put into my Vaio TR3A 60 days ago. For the last 30 days I've been getting a SMART error, which DiskCheckUp says is
3 Spin Up Time 33ms FAIL 18 18 50
Although they will replace the drive free, it takes about 2 days to reload everything and get new licenses for all the software. Sigh.
This 33 ms has been constant for the last week I've tested it.
Is there any other reason for the 33ms rather than a failing drive in a new drive? I seem to have seen something somewhere that new drives can show a bad spin up time for a while.
