Recalibration Retries S.M.A.R.T. parameter indicates the number of attempts to calibrate the hard drive after the first unsuccessful try.


Although this parameter is not considered critical by the most hardware vendors, degradation of this parameter may indicate electromechanical problems of the disk. Regular backup is recommended. If no other (critical) parameters report a problem, hardware replacement is recommended on mission critical systems only.
