HDD Sentinel reported that one of my storage drives (1TB WD Blue) has 303 bad sectors and is at 19% health. There’s nothing really valuable on it, just some video games, so it’s not an emergency. But I’d still like to replace it with a new 2Tb drive.
Normally I wouldn’t even ask and I’d just get a HGST drive. But my only options at the moment are Seagate Barracuda, Western Digital (that I’m trying to avoid since the one I’m trying to replace is only two years old) or Toshiba P300.
I’m leaning towards the Toshiba drive even thought I’ve never owned one. I’ve heard good things about their newer HDD’s. Backblaze report on failure rate is kinda useless, so I’d appreciate any advice you can offer.
