Drive failing on seek error rate

I've just opened the unraid web ui to be greeted with a cavalcade of notifications about the cache drive failing on the seek error rate. It's the first drive I'd had any issue with in unraid some could someone more knowledgeable than me say whether this drive is on the way out? I'm on 6.7.0 and the drive is a Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 who age I have no idea of but i've certainly had it for a few years.

You mean:


 10 Spin_Retry_Count        PO--C-   096   001   097    NOW  0

It's never good, and if you can replace it now, but it can work for some more time without failing.

Ah, no, I'm not sure why the full diagnostic report differs from the individual smart report for the drive but this is what is in the latter -

  7 Seek_Error_Rate         POSR--   029   028   030    NOW  55005657348106

That one is more serious, you should replace it now.

Righto, good excuse to upgrade to an SSD. New drive on the way!

Thanks for the advice.
