Identify if drive is new or refurb

Recommended Posts

Hi, I bought a replacement drive on ebay that was advertised as new. Got it today and the initial SMART data suggested a new drive with 3 power cycles an an hour of powered time. I then did an extended SMART test and it came back OK. But I do notice a very odd Reported_Uncorrect value of 9796820402176 ! Is this cause for concern on what should be a new device or indicative of something else ?


BTW, is it possible to reset SMART data if someone wanted to give the appearance of a new drive ?
