A small number of BAD sectors on the drive the reason to pass it under warranty?

Hello! A couple of years ago I bought a hard disk Seagate sshd 1000lm014. Worked well, but the OS frozen, and after a restart, HARD DISK SANTINEL given that the health of the disk is not 100% and 86%. Writes that no action is required, but there were 8 BAD sectors.
Warranty 36 months disk, the disk works, but confused about these bhed. So I think whether it makes sense to take to the store, and whether it will accept if the drive works and shows a small amount of bad sectors?
SMART metrics:

About cleaning disc
1)Remove all information from the disk.
2)Write the entire disk garbage information - movies, music
Can use the program to create cryptodisk, like truecrypt.
3)Remove junk information.

The report program from the manufacturer - the basis for warranty handling. Remember, called SeaTools.

Any existing bad-block that breaks the disk (for example, the sector can not be read, the timeout expires, or read not what was written), i.e. remap the drive was not executed - Yes, the basis for warranty handling. STS can carry out the remap and return the disk back as it is.
Indicators are SMART - no, they are not. Will be warranty only if so decided by the official software or documentation from the manufacturer.
Sorry, but this is nonsense. Zozpp gives no definitions, is official software or not. If the presence of bad blocks was not stated by the seller (for example disk b\y), it is a reason to take the drive. - Lonzo.Johnston commented on July 9th 19 at 13:39
: so what, you say, the article Zozpp describes the ills of the blocks independently fixed disk in the process? - Ignacio_Romaguera commented on July 9th 19 at 13:42
the problem lies in the wording. The drive should read and write its nominal addressable LBA range. If this does not occur or occurs with errors - Yes, it is a guarantee. If all your addressable capacity of the disk reads and writes - so the disk is OK. And nobody cares that it's reached the reserve area of a disk and ramapati bad sectors in this area. If just some sort of SMART the value of a parameter is not 0 - this is not a defect. - Ignacio_Romaguera commented on July 9th 19 at 13:45
: Article 18. Consumer rights at detection in the goods of disadvantages. I don't think the seller described the possibility of bad disk blocks. - Lonzo.Johnston commented on July 9th 19 at 13:48
: Did a test using SeaTools, writes the following: "unfortunately, your Seagate product has not passed an important diagnostic test. Perhaps this is due to the problematic sectors that are difficult to read. Seagate recommends that you run SeaTools for DOS program that has the ability to restore the most troubled sectors." Makes sense to do it and try to recover the drive or is it include warranty? If I'm gonna lose data when you restore? - Rubie commented on July 9th 19 at 13:51
: consumables. Always consider that at any random time to lose all the recorded data.

Pros and cons:
pass guarantee - 45 days it can keep in STS according to this very Zozpp (about the conditions of issuance of substitution at this period I do not remember exactly, need to check). The minimum and average depending on STS. It is likely that they will launch the recovery, disk fix and you will return in a few days. But there is a chance that the drive you replaced with a new one with a new warranty.
to run the program yourself accordingly, if you help, then you have no excuse to go to STS. If it does not help that in SC anyway (and higher probability of replacement).
I think all the difference. - Ignacio_Romaguera commented on July 9th 19 at 13:54
: Thanks for the help! I understand that consumable. Backups of course, just not nice on a production notebook is to detect the second disc has changed, something is not live, although the laptop is always on the table almost not move, the cooling system regularno clean. Apparently these disks come( - Rubie commented on July 9th 19 at 13:57

1. If you have to ask, would you lose the data means you have no backup.
2. Data you can always lose, even if you drink coffee at the train station in another city, and the computer at home on and off. And when drive operations, especially the risk increases somewhat. So no matter you have a destructive disk operations, or not - first thing do a backup of securities, check whether he has become and the most valuable (optionally encrypting) sebacate somewhere in the cloud.

3. When using SeaTools, there is a risk of data loss.
Cm. PP. 2(G) and 4 in the manual to the subject at www.seagate.com/support/seatools/SeaToolsDOSguide.pdf

Ideally, not lost anything, in some cases, possible partial or complete loss of information in the file, if the defect was in the folder may be corrupted (reversible or not) file system. In severe cases, the program can overwrite the entire disk with zeros, which may lead to correction of problems - then all data will be destroyed. However, the program will first ask for confirmation.

Conclusion: without a backup - do not touch. - Adrienne81 commented on July 9th 19 at 14:00
