Second drive. Finally something concrete. Do you know what C5 means for Caviar Blacks?

To make things even more confusing, the Western Digital Data LifeGuard Diagnostics tool passes that drive. It shows C5 as Current Pending Sector Count as well (200/200 as Value/Worst, but 0 for Threshold and 0 for "Warranty" column), but says both drives check out OK.

I am going to go ahead and zero both drives and see what the SMART data looks like on the other end.
