Question about Computers & Internet
SMART is reporting "imminent hard disk failure". The computer is 1 1/2 years old and I haven't used the drive that it is referring to.
In many occasions the hard drive get fill from many background reporting that was not deleted or by unexpected shutdown or by the hibernations feature if you have it on...try to go to the c:\ and type dir/p and look for all the files that are big and you do not recognize them and post the list to see if they can be deleted or not meantime did you start your maintenance on the drive? Go to my computer and right click on the c drive and go to property and select one by one from the list and see how much left on the driver and let me know.

Testimonial: "Thanks. I ran the error-check test from the properties menu, it came back with no errors. "
If you are recving a Disk failure from the Smart utility on you motherboard, you dive has gone south and will need to be replaced.
If you have purchased this drive yourself, you may have a warranty on the drive
ie. Seagate, 5yrs. Maxtor 5 yrs.
You can try a disk manager to check and possable repair but in most cases, if the unit doesn't pass the smart utility, it done.
P.S. you may be able to turn off the smart test but loss of data may and will smack you in the end.

SMART is used to measure your HDD health.It warns you of impending failure of your hard drive. If it goes down, it's a good idea to backup important stuff and prepare to replace the HDD.
S.M.A.R.T is an acronym for Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology systems (SMART) and it's usually built in to most modern ATA and SCSI hard disks.
If you need further assistance, feel free to ask. If this answers or solves your issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
