Hi:

- just got used ST2000DM001-1CH164 2TB, SATA 6Gb/s, 64MB 7200 RPM, 3907029168 sectors, and
running some basic Mhdd surface scan before i'm gonna put it to use for data.
- it starts ok, no issues for now.
- it has current CC43 firmware, but i found existing Update CC49

and i had a thought:

1. should i update firmware before i partition for data usage, OR
2. keep it, and hope for the best ?

Also Smart info:
- more than 4 years in a work, 9 Power_On_Hours 0x0032 055 055 000 Old_age Always - 40180
- always on in server, 12 Power_Cycle_Count 0x0032 100 100 020 Old_age Always - 45

So "don't touch if it works" ?

It's more like .... Don'ts expect for it to work much longer .... It will die very soon ... With or without FW update.

The "problem" will be bad heads or damaged surface and will "kill" all of the data stored on it for good ....
