Torque Amplification Count S.M.A.R.T. parameter indicates a number of attempts to compensate for platter speed variations.
This parameter is considered informational by the most hardware vendors. Although degradation of this parameter can be an indicator of drive aging and/or potential electromechanical problems, it does not directly indicate imminent drive failure. Regular backup is recommended. Pay closer attention to other parameters and overall drive health.
