Hello guys Im a bit worried because the 2TB HITACHI hdd (from 2010) I just bough from CEX it says 3068 days power on time, thats like 8 years and a half. and also it says more than 100 days Estimated remaining lifetime while all of my other drives say more than 1000 days. Im planning to use this hdd as a secundary drive to store games. Should I be worried, whats the best way to test the hdd is funcioning correctly and is the remaining lifetime shown on HDsentinel accurate ?

I'd want at least a couple more opinions.

1) Download, install and then run DiskGenius. In the left pane, click the drive in question, then up at the top in the menu, click "Disk" then "View S.M.A.R.T. Information". It should show the number of Power On Hours near the top right. Also, if the drive has a problem, you should see "Warning" on a taxicab yellow background on the left.

2) Download, install and then run CrystalDiskInfo. Up at the top, select "Disk" then the drive in question. It should show the number of Power On Hours on the right. Also, if the drive has a problem, you should see "Caution" on a taxicab yellow background on the left.
