  • 01 Read Error Rate with 200 being the worst yours is at 200. Enough said.
  • 03 Spin-Up Time: the lower the value the better.
  • 05 Reallocated Sectors Count: the lower the value the better. (in brief this is when the drive has found a bad sector and “reallocated” it.)
  • 0A, 0B, 0C again the lower the number the better, and these are all at their highest.
  • C6, C7, and C8 are all at their highest values as well…
