I rarely get to see SMART output that shows a problem with a hard drive, before the disk is actually dead. Today is one of these days. One of the 2TB Seagate drives in Grumpy shows ominous signs of unhappiness:

Grrrrrreat. The drive has started to reallocate sectors due to read failures.

This is the drive that didn't die 3 years ago. It's still under warranty, so a warranty replacement has been arranged. Let's see if I have any more luck than last time.

Update October 26, 2014:
The warranty replacement has arrived and is now swapped in. The 2TB partition will be done syncing in ~10 hours unless Seagate wants to repeat history.
