I remember when HDDs had a bad sector, these could be patched with scandisk. Never see issues with SSDs. Does clicking on recovery means it should patch bad sectors?

Hi! My 870 EVO 1 TB also started to give errors. Right now, the ECC errors are in a critical condition (SMART test) and incrementing daily.

Any suggestion or should I do directly to RMA?
