NVR HDD failed.  Status: Error

We have NVR recorder WH-D5216 with SATA 4GB HDD (less than 3GB avail).  About 5 yr old system.  Overwriting option is enabled.  Retention policy almost a month with a motion detection enabled.

The system skipped recording (50hrs) earlier this week.  But recovered on its own.  Looks like the drive gave up today again.  And looks like its for good this time.   Shows 0.00 GB space with Status ERROR. I assume is time to replace the drive, or the entire system.  Its SATA HDD. Tried to boot remotely twice  no luck.

Is there a limit on how many times the HDD can be overwritten?
