the problem is that you (we) have no any idea about the reason, so probably you will have additional 2 blocks on every [rainy] day or even the disk may die "suddenly". 2 blocks, 8 kb space itself is not a problem at all (of course). Recovering lost data is a problem and costs much more than a new disk.

Got you better now!

If I run ntfsresize using a minus bad blocks option, do you think it will help?
How do I run ntfsresize using a minus bad blocks option, so that the drive will be 'safe' or will it be safe?
Do you have any other suggestion than running ntfsresize using minus bad blocks option?
Can I run ntfsresize when a 2TB drive has only 125GB free space; shortly will it affect my data in there?
(I am already checking about ntfsresize, but still want to get user opinion and advices)

P.S.: The more I read about ntfsresize, I realize that --bad-blocks is just a work out. Would Western Digital replace the drive since it has bad clusters and it is still under guarantee (They never replied my e-mail case though)?

Angry This only happens on WD drives 1-3+TB and above

The spliceing I/O error, and not being able to copy files in my expierence only happens on Western Digital Drives. I just returned 2 brand new WD Black 3TB (5yr warranty) drives with the same problem, Replaced with 3TB Hitachi drives used (2 years old) they work perfect. I have Hitachi drives over 10 yrs. old with zero errors.

488333004 allocation units available on disk.
Because of that 8kb space, the disk is unsafe (I am asking because I don't have much knowledge about disks and bad clusters). It is just surprising me that 2 bad clusters would show a sign of being unsafe. Of course, I don't know anything about bad clusters or how many there can or should be.

Angry Super Unreliable WD Black Drives are the worst

WD replaced my 2 WD black 3TB drives with WD RED drives. (my brother had same Black problem).

I lost a ton of data on the WD Black drives that were only a few months old. The drives are Junk and should be removed from the market by WD.

Their (less expensive) RED drives seem to be Solid. Both my brother and I have had NO problems using these replacement 3TB 7200RPM drives.
I don't understand why WD continues to sell more expensive Black 5 yr warranted drives that Don't work?
I recommend all to stay away from WD Black drives, even for free. You will loose your data.

Old Hitachi 3TB 7200RPM are the best. I bought 2 used ones and never had a failure. I have owned Hitachi drives (purchased new) for over 10 years and never one failure. WD owns Hitachi now.
