    Hi Jack! (Hmmmm, that sounds funny :D) Welcome to TSG! East Texas, huh?

    The Smart feature of the hard drive is trying to give you ample warning that something is going to go very wrong, very soon.

    Back up anything you want to keep.

    Go to the manufacturer's website for your hard drive (Maxtor, Western Digital, etc.) as most have 3 year warranties.

    You can key in your serial number and order a replacement drive online.....

    Let us know what happens!
