I have opened
Disks program today and noticed that there is FAILING in the Assessment column for the SMART status.
What does this error mean? Is it serious problem?
I have Lenovo G50-45 laptop, disk is SEAGATE ST1000LM014-SSHD-8GB(LVD3) 1TB SSHD with 8GB NAND Flash (original disk in this latop).
The disk has died yesterday. 1 year and 3 months have passed since 1st hint of problem. About 4 months ago I had few issues with it not booting, but I was able to make another clean install. Since yesterday the disk is non-responsive. As this was long expected I had backup of all important data.(!) The disk was about 2 years old, so that was quite premature death.
