A couple weeks ago I received that warning about the disk being likely to fail soon. I ran smartctl and got the following: results
As you can see, it claims that my drive has actually passed the test. Also the disk utility no longer claims that my disk is going to fail but it does show a serious amount of bad sectors.
What I want to know is: Is my hard drive really going to fail soon?
P/s: I'm running Ubuntu on my Mac because I kept having boot problems with the original OS. Also, recently I had some problems copying a file which prompt the following error:
Error splicing file: Input/output error.
I bring this up because some have mentioned it indicates problems with the drive.
