Seagate ST4000DX001 HDD dying or not?

One of my HDDs (where my games are stored) is sort of (maybe?) dying* according to some programs. No real important data.

0.1% damaged blocks (3 red ones) according to HDTune, "Caution" according to Crystaldisk (uncorrectable sector count: 100) -- but SeaTools disagrees, as well as Speccy. (S.M.A.R.T. = Good.) Also did a CHKDSK which found nothing.

    You should keep an eye on the values, if they increase even a little bit the drive is likely dying. Fortunately you are storing games only and should be able to restore them somewhat easily.

    Always backup data you cannot replace at least once, twice if you can afford it.
