This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
also see askubuntu.com/questions/386987/… and superuser.com/questions/26842/… - if it were only for this single reallocated sector I would not worry much but you also had a lot of read errors. This should not be on a 7 months old drive - RMA it if possible, or replace it soon. –  Takkat Mar 23 at 14:40

No way. SMART is a hardware test. And Reallocated Sectors is one of the important. If the value is actually increasing, find a replacement disk now and leave this one for nonimportant data. However, I have an HDD which has this parameter bad for years already, but the number of bad sectors is not increaing.
