    It can fail soon or in 2 years, it's mostly impredictable... It happens for a number of reason, random failure, shock (laptop are most likely to have this problem as you shouldn't move an HDD when it's running and changing your laptop positioning happens frequently), it can happen from overheating, not defragmenting (specialy if you're drive is full as you need to keep 10 to 20% free on all HDDs in order for them to run correctly), it's also possible from wrong shutdown, hard reset or current interruption (battery dead) as the head will not replace itself on the start point where she is protected...

    HDDs are the most common failure in PC (from my personal experience i had replace 4 in 3 PC in order to keep them running)

    PS: Laptop shouldn't be moved at all when they are running and please, never use a laptop on a couch or on your knee except if you use a hard and level surface (a wood plank per example) HDD will suffer from any movement and all the pc component will suffer from bad ventilation if the air entry point are blocked by something (like your knee or a coverlet)

    Wow,Thank you so much for fast and helpful replay
    On base your reason I think it happened because overheating.
    I didn't have free space at all in D drive for 1 week and windows showed error about free space repeatedly and i didn't care that error til SMART failure happened :(
    any way, thank you very much again

    While this is a very old thread, I had to chime in on this part. The head WILL reset regardless of power. This was true 15 to 20 years ago but due to tech. progress it is in no way true nowadays. The head needs power to stay on disk, if power is lost it is removed from contact and reset. The power triggers an actuator the forces the head into contact, without power the actuator relaxes, thus removing the head from contact.
