Since this is a  Seagate HDD you may want check the drive with Seatools http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools which if the drive fails vital test will also give you an error code which you can supply when asking for the drive to be replaced during the rma porcess. If it were me I would replace the drive if there is the slightest doubt it may fail - I understand this may only be a backup drive - but what if the backup is needed one day and the drive fails at that very crucial moment. HDDs are fairly cheap at this time - larger and higher performing than the drive you are considering to become a  interesting paperweight
