Sorry for reviving a thread from the past, but I have a very similar
problem: my Current_Pending_Sector value is 2, and I get notifications
about it. I'm wondering whether I should replace the drive. What is
strange, though, is that when I run a long self-test (smartctl -t long
/dev/sdc), it reports „Completed without error”. Thus, I can't even
find the addresses of the faulty sectors – and actually, I question
the validity of my S.M.A.R.T. values. Either the
„Current_Pending_Sector” is incorrect (in reality, I have none), or
the self-test was not efficient enough to find the bad sector.
In this case, your guess is as good as mine. You could try running
"dd if=/dev/sdc of=/dev/null bs=256k" and see if you get any read
errors. Short of saving the data elsewhere and overwriting the
entire drive with zeros, I don't have anything to suggest.
