    Need clarification on Reallocated Sectors Count




      Recently my "Reallocated Sectors Count" at disk D: shows: Current=100 - Worst=100 - Threshold=36

      The Health Status according to CrystalDiskInfo is CAUTION.


      My C: disk shows Current=253 - Worst=253 - Threshold=10

      Status: GOOD


      What I like to know is first some clarification of the meaning of Current, Worst and Threshold terms.

      Secondly.  Is reformatting enough to fix the disk or is the problem irreversible and the disk will fail for good.


      Thank you
