hard drive health (status) incorrectly showing as Good

Hard drive health (Status) shows as Good even when there are problems.

See screenshot, both Speccy and Crystal Disk Info correctly identify the Uncorrectable Error Count as 1 (which is above the threshold of 0).  That result is shown in Crystal Disk Info as above the threshold & therefore a yellow warning/Caution.  That's correct.  Speccy reports this as Good in the table (I've added a red arrow) and also Good in the overall Status (I've added a red box).  Surely this is incorrect?

I've seen this on multiple Windows 10 PCs with a few different old hard drives.

I'm using the latest version 1.32 of Speccy that I just downloaded from your site.

Thanks for your help.

I've seen that a number of times using other tools that state "Good" perhaps giving a false since of nothing being wrong which could be disastrous, whereas CrystalDiskInfo states "Caution" which is preferred as a warning. I have that on some very old hard disks that Windows ChkDsk marked the bad sectors and took out of use, although those drives have worked for well over a decade with the Caution status and without any issues which is probably just pure luck.
