If a S.M.A.R.T. error happens to you, there are no other solution but to back up your data on a different separate hard drive and replace your existing hard drive because it is failing. This error is an indication that your drive’s condition is critical and it may fail any time soon.

This is also a good indication for you to buy a new hard drive to replace the failing one. S.M.A.R.T. stands for Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology. It is a diagnostic method originally developed by IBM for their mainframe drives to provide advanced warning of drive failures. It was also introduced with the ATA-3 specification that at that time referred to as “Predictive Failure Analysis.”

This technology analyzes many of the mechanical attributes and in the long run several failures can be predicted by detecting if the hard drive is moving out of tolerance. Though this technology can detect impending problems, not all hard drive failures are predictable.
