Smart monitors your HDD the warning you get means your HDD is on its way out. Do as it says and backup your data.

Don't replace the HDD because it says so just make a backup...an if the drive fails replace it.

Up to you.

I think it is warning you that your hard disk is about to fail- I got the same warning some years ago and had to have a new hard disk-luckily still under warranty
