Is This Hard Drive on Dell Windows 7 going to fail - SMART Errors

Last Modified: 2018-05-22
Dell Inspirion ONE  All in One - Windows 7.  About 4 years old.

Last week, there were constant error messages about the drive having problems.
This week, these messages stopped.
I downloaded CrystalDisk, and it shows two errors.

  • Is this drive about to stop working?
  • Is this a small error?
  • If so, can we live with it for a while?  If so, how long?
