    There is no message in our software that pops up and just says "raw error rate". There is an option in DiskCheckup to display messages when a threshold is crossed, but these should be mostly self explanatory, and more informative than just 3 words.

    raw read error

    I'm relieved! But can you tell me why this message keeps popping up? One time 52 to 51, then 60 to 58 or 58 to 57. Does it have anything to do with a programm I've downloaded? Thanks for your information, Ricky

    If you had a FAIL for the "Raw Read Error Rate" or a fail for any other value, then you should be concerned and attempt to get the drive replaced if it is under warranty.

    But just looking at the numbers in the "Raw value" column doesn't tell you much, as these values are determined by the drive manufacturers and the significance can vary from one drive model to the next.

    More interesting are the values in the "worst" and "threshold" columns.

    Raw Error Rate

    HOW DOES THIS SOUND: attribute raw read error rate changes 60 TO 58 . DOES THIS MEAN NEW HDSK ?

    I wonder...

    Yes it is still under warranty since I just bought it. There's no fail mark in "Raw Read Error " and "Seek Error Rate" it say that it is Ok but the values are very alarming... Other Smart Softwares indicates that the health and performance status of the drive is at 50% only.... my other 2 drives are at 95 and 100%. Only just this new 320gb HD i bought is at 50%.... I'm really confused if I should ask for replacement even the drive is running well, but the performance is very low in percentage....

    Raw Read Error Rate Fail.
    What should/can I do?
    Start to keep good backups of your hard disk so when the drive fails you have minimum disruption. This is not the kind of problem that you can fix at home.

    I have not a good feeling about it.
    Can you elaborate? I mean is there smoke pouring out of the drive or something that you are basing your bad feelings on?

    As you can see from your own results, all the SMART attributes reported, "OK".

    I don't think there is anything to be worried about. Sudden power failure are fairly common place, and you haven't crossed the threshold that would indicate that the drive is bad.
