Ask a Question
If you have problems with drives and CrystalDiskInfo, ask in the comments.

If the technical condition turns yellow, does this mean that you need to buy a new disk?

nikolay emelyanov
Optional. This is an occasion to think about backing up valuable files. An HDD with a yellow indicator can last for thousands of hours.

How long on average can a disk last in the red state?

nikolay emelyanov
The service life of a device is individual, it is difficult to predict. If the problem worsens (the number of bad sectors grows), it won’t be long before the failure occurs.
