I'd keep half an eye on this value. My root drive for my server started to
list reallocated sectors, it stuck around the 10-20 mark for a year or 2 but
then one day it started climbing fast, I noticed it as weird pauses when you
tried to do something.
I managed to recover the contents of the drive, but it was definitely about
to die. Luckily I had another drive on hand from when one of my drives
appeared to be failing, but wasn't in the end.
