I ran Scanner on my new Hitachi disk, and was horrified to discover after the scan that SMART was showing 3 bad sectors and 16 pending bad sectors. Before the scan there were no SMART errors on the disk. So what happened? Did the Scanner find previously undiagnosed problems, or did running the Scanner cause the problems?
