Surface test errors - should I be concerned

I recently ran this test in Mini Tool partition wizard which reported 18 on a 130 Gb disk. Is this acceptable or what?

would not worry about them on that size of drive but something may be the cause like pc not shut down right after crashing. keep an eye out for if they build up

As ever, thanks woodchip. I assume everyone agrees with you.

As a precautionary measure & if necessary, I would backup all data on the hard disk.

Did you run Windows own Checkdisk (chkdsk) utility too? If not, do that too & tick BOTH boxes in the applet (click here if you need to know how). G
