Just received the following warning flag when returning from standby.
"Attribute Power on Hours changes from 91 to 90"
Can anyone advise me as to the meaning of this ?

hard drive installed, and this message is from the drive. Any message from SMART can indicate a possible problem, and you should immediately back up your data files as a precaution.

How old is the drive?

Yes agreed ed but the numbers are quite high so not too much of a problem. If it had been lower than 50 I would panic
