Hi amr_moustafa,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Take this opportunity to backed your files as you may need to replace your harddrive very soon.


Failure in SMART test is an indication of deterioration of harddrive integrity that may be crashing soon.


Prepare you options on replacing the drive and its installed software.


I hope this helps answer your query.
