Lenovo desktop diagnostic results. I ran another more comprehensive test later and mixed results.
Also there is an extra HD on this system so can that be utilized

The hard drive tested obviously is a candidate for replacement before it fails completely
The system won't be used between April 9 and May 8 so I'll use it until the 9th and look into it more in early May. Files, photos, music, videos, documents, bookmarks desired to be backed up. I have some small thumb drives and not sure how many gigs are needed for the back up of all that data. We do have a shop that might be able to move everything to the second drive. That drive is 500 gig and the one being used is only 300 gig and about 40% of that one is not being used.

I have had that error on my Lenovo Desktop.

Back up the drive immediately to a USB hard drive and then replace it. Do not delay. I have a dead drive in the basement.
Can the other drive in the system be used once the defective one is removed?

If it is not a RAID system, then yes the good drive can still be used.
