    SO your Patroit Blast Hard Drive, I assume is what it is? is going bad. SMART has failed indicating it is dying and needs to be replaced.

    Yes. If you have any important data on it you can try and copy it off onto either a USB stick drive or onto the other HDD in the PC.

    If you look in the pic you posted its referencing SATA3G_2: Patriot Blast in the bottom saying it has a SMART failure.

    I would load into windows, assuming that the Patriot Blast drive is not the one with windows in it? (Is the Patriot Blast your OS boot drive, you haven't advised this)
