Device: /dev/sdc [SAT], 1 Currently unreadable (pending) sectors
How can I manage this issue?
Buy a new disk drive? Seriously, pending sectors are disk write errors
and the disk has run out of "extra" blocks to write/re-map them to. The
error occurs later when you later attempt to read from them. It is a
sign that the disk is is on its way out.
Current Pending Sector Count S.M.A.R.T. parameter is a critical parameter and indicates
the current count of unstable sectors (waiting for remapping). The raw value of this
attribute indicates the total number of sectors waiting for remapping. Later, when some of
these sectors are read successfully, the value is decreased. If errors still occur when
reading some sector, the hard drive will try to restore the data, transfer it to the
reserved disk area (spare area) and mark this sector as remapped.
Please also consult your machines's or hard disks documentation.
This is a critical parameter. Degradation of this parameter may indicate imminent drive
failure. Urgent data backup and hardware replacement is recommended.
